I am a hand weaver living in the south west of Scotland, producing small numbers of luxury scarves and shawls for ladies and men.
My loom is a Louet from The Netherlands. It has sixteen shafts and is a dobby loom capable of weaving quite intricate designs.
My yarn of preference is almost always fine silk.
The inspiration for my weaving usually comes from nature and is very often water based. When I am weaving at home, I look out over a small Scottish loch and find the ever changing colours and patterns fascinating as the weather and seasons change.
I do undertake commissions for special sizes or colours of scarves or shawls and can use silk hand dyed in Scotland. By no means am I a production weaver, preferring to weave small numbers of unique designs. These scarves are intended to be enjoyed for everyday wear and come in a variety of eye catching colours. They are all pre-washed and hand finished but may be hand washed and ironed with care to keep them looking good over the longer term.
Prices for commissions are prepared individually depending on requirements.
I weave in a pet free and tobacco free home.
