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).

Thank you for visiting. I'm glad you like our woollens. It's not all made from Skye wool, but we're really proud to have growing collection of local wool products now.

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.

Hi. This weaver was weaving items like blankets and throws, etc. I believe there are kilt makers in Lochalsh and Inverness and also Edinburgh or Glasgow. Good luck and have a great visit.
