where landscape fires a weaver’s imagination….
From elegant British wool blankets to special handwoven silk wraps, warm and windproof woollen scarves to sophisticated hot water bottle covers, plus ‘tip-top’ traditional wool walking socks, cushion covers and glorious British wool yarns to make your own projects — you will find them all here, at Laura’s Loom, where I design and create beautiful woven fabrics.
For my British wool collections I start right at the beginning, with the sheep, selecting top quality fleece from farms in the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria. I work with spinners and dyers to create the yarn and with commission weavers and knitters to produce my designs. Everything is sourced and produced in the UK, right down to the packaging and labelling.
I also throw the shuttle myself, weaving exclusive pieces on my handloom. My greatest inspiration comes from the subtle colours and textures of Britain’s northern landscapes. The results? Well come on in and take a look or visit my new workshop in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
Laura’s Loom celebrates the craft of handweaving and Britain’s tremendous woollen heritage.
