Originally made from the coarse, thick wool of cheviot sheep (named for the Cheviot Hills on the Scottish-English border), cheviot can now be made of other wool, wool blends, and manufactured fibers. The fabric is heavy, fulled and rough, with a hairy nap. It can be made in various weaves including twill and herringbone.
