A coarse wool fabric traditionally handwoven in Donegal County, Ireland, the name Donegal tweed is now applied to any fabric that has the same look. Usually in a plain weave, but sometimes a twill, the most common colors are black and white woven to make a heathered earth tone, flecked with colorful slubs.

Uses: Irish walking hats, driving caps, golf knickers, slacks, jackets and skirts, heavier weights for coats
