What is "Cheviot" - Definition & Explanation

A loosely woven tweed fabric with a shaggy texture. Cheviot was originally made from the wool of the cheviot sheep in the hills at the bordering England and Scotland.
A rough surfaced fabric of wool with a heavy nap. Used for coating.
Originally made of wool in a twill weave from the Cheviot sheep but now it is also made of blends, spun synthetics, crossbred and reused wools. It is very rugged with a harsh, uneven surface that does not hold a crease and sags with wear. It resembles serge but is much more rugged and coarse and will not shine because of the rough surface. Cheviot is often sold as a homespun but true homespun has a plain weave and very heavy. Cheviot is also sold as a tweed.
A popular staple lightweight sport coating tweed with a rough napped surface. Named for the Cheviot sheep from the Cheviot Hills of Scotland. Fabric is rugged, rather than harsh in hand, with somewhat uneven yarns. Usually twilled diagonally or woven in chevrons.
