Pink Hebridean Hood - worn by Aimee

Visitors Welcome

Spring has sprung!  The daffodils are not quite open yet, but there are definite signs of spring.  It is still cold enough that it is worth wrapping up in our hats and scarves and our wraps are in demand all year round.

After Easter we will be going on to our Summer opening times - i.e. we will be  open most Saturdays as well as during the week.  However, we have various events that will mean we are closed on some Saturdays - see below for details.

We have been very busy making stock to supply various retail outlets - see "shops" on our links menu - but if you are not able to visit one of these places in person, our online shop is available 24/7.

Forthcoming Events:

On 16th May, Ruth will be at Groam House Museum in Rosemarkie running a felting workshop about Celtic knotwork designs - see the museum's website for more details.

On 23rd May we will be at the Highland Wool Festival in Dingwall - click here for more information.  Ruth will be running a workshop on Celtic embellishments and demonstrating feltmaking in addition to us having a stall with our wide range of products.

On the left Aimee is wearing one of our cosy Hebridean Hoods made from a deep pink/magenta section of our latest tweed.  This particular example proved so popular with our models that one of them bought it.  However, we do have more of the tweed and can make one similar, though not identical.  We try to never make two things exactly the same - one of the things that makes Anna Macneil products so popular.

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.
