Croft on the Scottish Hebrides where tweed is woven, from a 1938 Life magazine article.
From the same article: “Because pungent lichens and herb roots, peat smoke, fire, and water are used in its manufacture, the legend prevails that a cow will be attracted to a genuine Harris tweed by its smell and will lick the cloth.”

1938
On September 21st, 1938, it came without warning. As the story goes, Katharine Hepburn was out playing golf in Fenwick as the monster storm was approaching. Hepburn and many other rode out the storm in Fenwick.
She stated in her 1991 book that 95% of her personal belongings were either lost or destroyed, including her 1932 Oscar which was later found intact.
