English nature inspires Highlands theme from Woolmark

The Wool Lab from Woolmark has released seven inspirational themes for Autumn/Winter 2014/15. One of which is

Highlands

The mood was inspired by two trends becoming more and more evident: the coming back of the jacket and of tweed or tweed-look fabrics, interpreting a new concept of luxury which is more authentic and close to natural things, with a romance and a history behind it.

The atmosphere and the colours are ones of the English Highland's nature, immediately associated to very traditional UK fabrics and knits, such as tweeds and Shetlands in warm mélanges.

Materials are predominantly in 100 per cent wool worsted and carded. The structures and patterns are those of classic tweed, sonegal and Shetland, herringbone, twill, overcheck and hound's tooth.

The knitwear is a feast for the classic Made in Britain taste, featuring mouliné and melange, knoppy yarns, plus jacquard jersey and tweed and donegal knits.
