Scalpay Linen Harris Tweed on Stage at the Hebridean Celtic Festival

We are blessed this week at Scalpay Linen - some of our special Harris Tweed was included in a fabulous outfit designed by Netty Sopata of "Diggory Brown" and worn by K T Tunstall.  The orange and brown tweed was ours, and the black came from our friends at Breanish Tweed in Lewis.  And the fabby photo was taken by Leila Angus of Brighter Still.

On the blog we followed this tweed through from warp to finished -

The brown element of the warp is from the yarn kindly spun for me by Harris Tweed Hebrides in Shawbost last year and is made of local Hebridean fleeces. 

Agricultural Shows coming up:  this coming Saturday maybe see you at the Lochs Show which will be at their new showground in Laxay this year.  I'm judging the poultry competitions, so I've been knee-deep in the encylopaedia of chickens for the past few days genning up.... 

Then next Tuesday the South Harris Show is at Leverburgh and we will be entering some chickens for that one.  Drakes of Hazzared will be there again I believe - always great fun, as well as Chainsaw Pete and various other attractions.  Check out their website for full details:

It must be so satisfying to see your tweed fabric being worn. I enjoy the process photos and descriptions too.
Why is what's on someone's loom is more interesting than my own? I love to see what other people are doing, thanks.
