Exclusive Preview

Introducing the "Buth Scalpaigh" cafe curtains at the earliest stage of their production!  Scalpay Linen have decided to design and weave an exclusive cloth in celebration of the opening of the new community shop and cafe at the beginning of April.  This cloth will be gifted by us and made into curtains for the cafe.
We ordered the linen yarn specially from Jos Vanneste in Belgium and some of it had to be plied so as to get a more textured finish.
This is the start of the warp. Each section, of which there will be 28, is a mirror image of the previous one so, though we are only warping with 24 ends, the pattern will be 48 ends wide.
We hope to be updating the blog on progress of the cloth.
