Magee 1866 x Irish Wool Vol. II
In a continuation of our commitment to developing Irish wool for use in our textiles, we are proud to present the latest additions to the Magee 1866 X Irish Wool collection.
At Magee 1866, we are part of a wider movement to develop and use Irish Wool in our textiles. We have been working with Donegal Yarns, a local yarn supplier just up the road in Kilcar on sourcing wool from Irish farms across the country.
Patrick Temple, CEO of Magee Weaving has also teamed up with sheep farmer James Lorinko to develop fine Irish Wool on the family farm at Rathforker, just outside Donegal Town and with fields overlooking the Atlantic.
The wool is then spun by Donegal Yarns and designed and woven into fabric at our Mill in Donegal Town. The tweed is washed in the peaty waters of the River Eske resulting in a beautifully soft finish.
These are truly sustainable pieces, made with longevity in mind.
This season sees three new styles in Irish Wool.
The Irish Wool Jessica is a classic swing coat in a bold, oversized charcoal, red and white check, the perfect style for winter race meets or days outdoors.
The Irish Wool Milly is an unlined, unstructured blazer style jacket in a charcoal and red houndstooth Donegal Tweed. This easy to wear piece will quickly become your new go-to jacket.
The first men's piece to launch in the Magee 1866 X Irish Wool Collection is the Erne. A bestselling style, this short, contemporary Donegal Tweed overcoat is woven in a rich red, green, grey and navy check and is perfect for layering over suits and jackets.
A really exciting addition to our Home Interiors collection, the Magee 1866 X Irish Wool throws are woven from 100% Irish wool in a striking oversized houndstooth pattern.
Available in two colours and finished with thick tasselled fringing, a throw is the perfect piece to showcase this unique fabric.
A truly sustainable accessory that is made with longevity in mind.
Irish Wool isn't here today and gone tomorrow, we are in for the long haul and we hope you will follow us on our journey as this movement evolves season after season.
