When we first saw these pedal-powered looms, that is exactly what we thought too. There's a great book on the history of textiles, if you're interested. It's called "The Golden Thread" by Kassia St Clair. Fascinating to see how much but also how little has...More

All hand made with wool from local sheep - lovely range of Skye-inspired colours. Plenty of choice if blankets, scarves etc. Open 1000-1800 but not Mondays (I think).

Very friendly owners, happy to show you how the machines are operated. The products they produce are stunning and excellent quality. It’s well worth investing in a few prices because they’re Hand made and excellent workmanship.
