Tween jacket
MFA# 2012.969


A rough, coarse woolen cloth with a slightly napped, nubby texture. The durable, moisture resistant tweeds were originally homespun in Scotland for outdoor wear. The dyed wool yarn is closely woven in plain, twill or herringbone patterns. The medium to heavy weight fabrics are typically used for dresses, coats, and suits.
