New product - striped serape

New Harris Tweeds

During my last visit to the Isle of Lewis I called in at Carloway Mill to collect some tweed they had woven for me.  This particular roll is a mix of soft blues, pinks and lilacs (pictured right) and we will be using it to make some Hebridean Hoods and wraps.  As these have been in great demand, our stock of suitable tweeds (specially woven with fringed sections) was reducing and I asked at the mill if they had any others.  First response was "no" but then Murdo recalled that there was a bale in their store at the other end of the village.  Turned out there were two bales - one of a plain dark peaty brown tweed and the other of some lovely sripey patterns.

We have done a bit of playing with these stripes and today I made a new product which you will find on our special offers page - a gorgeous, full serape with a silk trim around the neck.

Forthcoming Events:

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.
