Cheviot is a rough-surfaced fabric of wool with a heavy nap, 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 Cheviot was originally made from the wool of the Cheviot sheep in the hills at the bordering England and Scotland. Wool originally and mostly made from wool from the Cheviot sheep but today also made of blends, spun synthetics crossbred and reused wool. Very rugged, harsh, uneven surface that does not hold a crease and sags with wear. Resembles serge but is much more rugged and coarse and will not shine because of the rough surface. Also sold as tweed. For example, is involved in coats, suits, sportswear and coat.
