A new app for mobile devices

So many people access information through their phones and tablets that we decided to take up the offer of a free app - so you can do download this by clicking here. (iOS and Android only)

The app has basic information such as how to find us or phone us, opening times and a simple gallery, so if you are planning to drop in and visit us while travelling in the area, it is well worth putting the app on your phone.

Warm hats for cold days

In the course of the last week we have had several emails and phonecalls from people wanting to buy a hat - a sure sign that summer is over.  A common situation is that people have seen one of our hats while on holiday but not bought it as the weather was warm, then getting home and wish they had got it!  Within each style, all the hats are cut to the same pattern but due to variations in the tweeds and fleeces as well as making each individually mean that there can be a range of fits.  So if you find one that fits, buy it!  The most popular style is "Morag" (pictured right), fleece lined and reversible, this hat is popular with men, women and children and is great for keeping out the cold winds.

Forthcoming Events

On 17th October we will have a stall at the Highland Wool & Textiles Fair at Eden Court in Inverness.   This is a one day event for all things wooly.  There will be people selling things such as hand-spun wool and craft kits as well as finished products.  We will be there with our hats, scarves, wraps, coats and jackets as well as little things such as keyring purses and small wallhangings.

In November and December we are booked for some of the Exclusively Highlands craft fairs.  Watch out for details nearer the time.

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.
