Harris Tweed

I am just back from a visit to the Isle of Lewis.  As well as I tying in a new warp on my loom, I collected the last batch of tweed that I had woven from the mill at Carloway.  I also bought some of their lovely tweeds - and spent much of today sorting out our stock of tweeds so that there was room to store it all.  My own tweed is a variety of different greens - mostly on the olive side and it will be used to make more of our lovely Hebridean Hoods and our embroidered wraps (see picture left).

Very popular this year - our small Celtic Cross wallhangings, such as this one pictured right inspired by one of the ancient sculptured cross slabs on Iona.

Craft Fairs

We will be exhibiting atquite a few events over the autumn - starting with Living Food Fair at Cawdor Castle on 20th September and then the Highland Wool and Textile Fair on 18th October at Eden Court in Inverness. 

The following weekend (25th & 26th October) we will be at an Exclusively Highlands event in the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh.

Details of other events will follow soon - watch this space.

On these pages you will find information about who we are, where we are and what we do.  You can browse our online shop, find out about our feltmaking classes or look at pictures of our work. We have links to other interesting websites, including how our main fabric - Harris Tweed - is made. 

We use technology that spans the centuries - from a 100 year old Hattersley loom for weaving some of the tweed we use through to state-of-the-art embroidery machines and laser cutting machine.  But we do low-tech as well!  Everything is hand finished and we are often sitting with piles of hand-sewing to do.

Visit our online shop pages to see our full range of products - wraps, capes, cushions, wallhangings, bags and purses, Christmas decorations and more.  Prices range from as little as £3.50 to as much as you can afford for a large one-off wallhanging.
