Ross County are delighted to announce an exciting development for our Staggies Army. For several weeks we have been working with Harris Tweed Hebrides to develop our own Ross County Tweed which we are now delighted to be able to show our army members & fans, this tweed will be made in to scarves which will form the introductory gift to Staggies Army members.
Due to COVID-19, the process has taken slightly longer but we are delighted to be able to work in partnership with a local company who share equal values with us in developing this concept. In addition to this, we will also be working with, Rarebird Design, who will complete the project for us, and again they are a company that we can identify with who are also rooted in the Western Isles.
On the project, Ross County CEO, Steven Ferguson said, “We have been in dialogue with Harris Tweed Hebrides for a couple of months now but with the restrictions we haven’t really been able to drive it as fast as we would have liked but to have the process in production now is a big step. We have worked to design something that we feel our fans and army members will like and hopefully treasure as we have tried to make it truly unique.”
“Having our own bespoke tweed is not an easy process but something we felt really gives us a sense of ownership and pride, which I am sure our fans will see as something to get excited about.”
Over the coming couple of weeks we will be taking an in-depth look in to the process of getting our Harris Tweed scarves from production, right to you, and the local factor we are bringing to a unique product made in the Highlands for people in the Highlands.
