Winding pink and blue today 💗💙 #pirn #pirns #pirnwinding #pirnwinder #hattersleydomestic #

Some of us have a fancy #bobbinwinder. Some of us #makedo. This solution is ugly but functional. #weaversofinstagram #vävning #pirnwinder

Beautiful gold detailing hiding under all that lint, grease and rust #hattersleydomestic #pirnwinder

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.

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

The neighbours have gone out so I can get a bit of pirn winding done in the sunshine! Desperately trying to weave up all of this blue weft so I can experiment with other colours 😉 #blue #weft #tweed #weaving #pirn #pirnwinding #pickingstickcloth #hattersleyloom #hattersleydomestic #pirnwinder
