A closer look at tweed

Another day, another macro challenge (Day 10!). Today I’ve been experimenting with patterns and textures, trying everything from the old wooden beams in our flat to our matt steel stair bannisters.

I finally honed in on fabrics and decided to take a closer look at some Harris Tweed. Now I am very allergic to wool / tweed type fabrics, so I thought it’d be really interesting to zoom in and see just what might be causing my skin irritations and itchy eyes…

It was immediately apparent – the amount of loose, sharp fibres on the tweed are easy to see with the camera. Even just looking at this shot makes me itch!
