Beautiful handmade and naturally dyed pure wool scarves

Beautiful handmade and naturally dyed pure wool scarves

 After months of deliberation (and avoidance) I have finally sorted out my initial foray in online selling.

As a starting point I eventually decided to give Folksy – the place to buy handmade gifts and craft supplies and for British designers and makers to sell their work – a try.

It was very easy and my new shop is now up and running so I hope you will make a quick visit and check it out.

Tweed All About It

Tweed – it’s oh so fashionable with lots of lovely high quality products on the market – such as this fabulous Man Bag by Catherine Aitken. Plus some not so good ‘makers’ who have jumped on the bandwagon. But will the trend last and quality out? I do hope so.

Lewis People 3

Some more lovely people who I met on Lewis and Harris.


Paulette’s husband was really helpful and spent ages discussing their business with me and giving me advice, I thought he was extremely generous in sharing his knowledge and really appreciated the time he gave me. Paulette also designs her own tweeds so I was particularly fascinated to see their colour blanket, woven on her selected warp, which shows the results of using a huge range of different weft threads.

Blue Pig

I loved Jane’s beautiful textile art and she was extremely enthusiatic about my work which was a great boost.

Hebrides Art

Another must visit site! Delicious food, beautiful gallery and setting, inspiring art. I was totally won over. Lesley and Alisdair Wiseman have got all the elements just right.
