Mairi hat at Dunnet Bay

Hats for windy days

It is supposed to be summer, but we are struggling to get above 10°C! As a result, sales of hats are going well.  In the last couple of weeks we have posted them north, south, east and west.  One happy customer wore hers when she visited Dunnet Bay on the very north coast of Scotland and sent me this lovely picture - this style is "Mairi" and is inspired by a traditional bonnet.   Claire wrote "here's a picture of me wearing it on the beach at Dunnet Bay :-) It's very good for keeping my ears warm..."

We have ten different styles of hat, so there is bound to be one that will keep your ears warm - all are designed to keep you warm and stay on in a wind (plenty of that up here!)

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.
