Saxony fabric is a type of fine, very high-quality wool fabric. The fabric is soft to the touch and medium to heavyweight. This type of wool was initially made in Saxony, Germany.  Now, the term Saxony does not refer to wool from a particular area but more so wool from the Merino sheep. It is also used to refer to the worsted woolen fabric. This type of wool is of very high quality. Therefore, it is the best wool to use in the manufacture of the best high-quality tweed jackets.
