Welcome to our Blog


This is the official Scalpay Linen blog. Everyone else seems to have one, so we thought it was about time we joined in.

This blog is going to be about weaving (specially tweeds), running a small business, hand-spinning, crofting (specially sheep and poultry) and anything else of general interest which we feel like including.

As we are Harris Tweed weavers, expect to see the new tweeds we are producing as well as other projects we are working on.

We would like to encourage Hattersley loom owners to contribute to this page as well. Sometimes a little support goes a long way, and we have links with other weavers all over the country who will help with those little problems that can get in the way of straightforward weaving!

So, please put us on your list of favourites and we look forward to you dropping in from time to time.

Best regards
Sheila & JF

Thanks - I am going to make an effort to keep it up to date. It's a lot easier than updating my regular website.

Thanks Darcy. Weaving isn't at all difficult. Start with weaving sticks or a peg loom and work up to something more complicated. I love crochet, knitting, spinning and weaving and there just isn't enough time to get it all into a 24 hour day!
