Thanks for sharing. That answered several question I had about tweed!Die Workwear has done it again. Great read.
No, I don't think so. It is navigable for no more than six miles upstream of Berwick. Its gravel banks and shallowness are one reason for its reputation for good salmon fishing.FWIW I wonder whether the origin of the name "tweed" is not that the fabric originally came from the Tweed valley but that the river Tweed played a role in its transport.
