  • Great place to see genuine hand (well pedal) weaving - the gentleman took time to explain and show us how the weave worked and the many different items that they manufacture - it was really...

  • My husband and I visited the shop today and did not expect to see the workshop where Roger was working on weaving a piece. We were instantly greeted by Roger who invited us in to take a look at the loom. He was very friendly and explained a lot about the process. He was very knowledgeable about the wool and weaving process and gladly answered all of our questions. We were even able to have a go at pedalling! Behind the workshop is their shop selling their products - scarves, throws, pillows, some clothing, etc... There was a nice assortment of items and colours. Something for everyone. The prices were very reasonable - buy here and not from one of the over-priced touristy shops! Here, you get quality, nice conversation and a product created on Skye.
  • We visited today and had a really enjoyable time, watching and then attempting ourselves to pedal the loom. The shop was also fab and I couldn't resist buying some tweed to make into some cushions when I get home. Our friends from Copenhagen also enjoyed the visit. Thank you both for keeping such a wonderful craft alive.
