This is a small, quirky little place that we stumbled on in the rain. I learned about weaving! And bought some stuff, too!

Thank you very much for visiting us and recommending our business. I'm glad you like our work. We've just started the process of working on next year's Skye Wool colour palette. Yellow lichens (Xanthoria parietina) are top of the list at the moment.

We very much enjoyed our visit here and continue to enjoy our purchases. We had never seen a bicycle powered loom before and we loved learning more about the various wools and weaving techniques from the delightful proprietor. Absolutely worth a visit.
