New British Made Molloy & Sons Irish Tweed Gamble & Gunn Caps

Donegal06 Donegal05

All British made this new addition to our range of caps is created from beautiful charcoal grey Molloy & Sons Donegal Tweed.

From their home in Ardara, a small village in County Donegal on Ireland’s rugged North West coast where the Blue Stack Mountains meet the Atlantic Ocean, Molloy & Sons weave their own cloth and have it washed and finished locally to the highest standards. Drawing on the huge wealth of textile knowledge, skill, and expertise handed down through the generations, and taking pride in building on that tradition and heritage to produce the finest Donegal tweeds available.

Molloy & Sons Donegal tweed  reflects the full spectrum of rich colours found in the local landscape. The natural white and black of the sheep, the greys, browns, blues, greens, purples, reds, yellows, and oranges echo those to be found in the sea, sky, hills, and mountains of Donegal. These colours are skilfully blended together in our Donegal yarns, much of which is spun and dyed locally.

Donegal yarns typically contain a base made of three to six colours with added nepps or spots of colour. It is these nepps which are the defining characteristic of Donegal tweed, which can be bright and contrasting, or complimentary and tonal colours, or mixes of each. With our range of yarns literally thousands of patterns, subtle, rich and colourful, but always beautiful can be woven.

Ardara has always had a very strong textile tradition and is recognised as the home of the Donegal tweed weaving industry.
