Not much to show in the way of tweed at the moment. I am currently weaving a commission, but I can share a quick snippet of pirn winding #pirnwinder #harristweed #hattersley #bespoke #menswear #isleofharris #weaving #wool

Eugene threading a shuttle. By hand. I read this recently: "Kissing the shuttle" is the term for a process by which weavers used their mouth to pull thread through the eye of a shuttle when the pirn was replaced. The same shuttles were used by many weavers and the practice contributed to the spread of disease.

Quite a long weekend, working on the look and layout of the studio, thankfully punctuated with lunches at the ever wonderful @pumpstbakery. Really pleased with the new office bench lights, which we made from old terracotta drainage pipes and power using the solar panels. The pirn winder is now in a better place, saving much needed space in the main workshop and near the fire, which will be appreciated in the winter months. The new rocker (how many random chairs can we fit in this place?) was found outside a local house with a sign saying "free" - which is an offer Kt can never refuse.

The yarn tensioner may need a sweep before I start on the next colour!

~ A Pirn Winder. Most people, mainly my Father's generation, either have fond childhood memories of this machine as they made pirns (or 'filled the bobbins') for their weaver parent, or they shudder when they see one now with flashbacks of having to make pirns in exchange for pocket money! 😊 Either way, I think everyone still secretly loves to reminisce. I'm certainly excited for when my oldest Nephew is able to help out his Aunty H. ❤ ~ #handmadebyheatherisleofharris #harristweed #pirnwinder #isleofharris #weaving #hattersleyloom #handwoven #clòhearach #clomor #hearach #eileannahearadh
