Wool Tweed

We have plenty of new wool in the store, and today we're looking at these handsome tweeds!

Tweeds have great loft, helping them trap warmth wonderfully. They can come in many weaves, such as twill and herringbone, but always with a great texture, large fluffy yarns, and signature colored flecks.

A tweed wool is a classic choice that never goes out of style! Perfect for your next jacket!

Treadlette Tuesday: Julia's Reversible Vest!

Treadlette Julia was spotted at the store wearing this cute Halloween vest the other day!

It's fun and seasonal, and really dresses up a t-shirt and jeans, but it gets better! It's reversible! And it reverses to a Christmas print!

 Of course we had to have her model the Christmas side as well. Julia says that if you're going to wear seasonal prints, you may as well try to get a little more time out of them!

You might also notice that Julia is standing in front of our gorgeous new button corner. Well, Julia is our Goddess of Buttons at Treadle, and she organized this fantastic button re-do! We think it looks great!
