where landscape fires a weaver’s imagination….
If you’re looking for an elegant British wool blanket, a super special handwoven silk wrap, a warm and windproof woollen scarf, a sophisticated hot water bottle cover or an unusual cushion, a pair of good old-fashioned traditional 100% wool walking socks, or some glorious British wool yarn to make your own project, you will find it 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 the fleece from farms in the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria. I work with spinners and dyers to create the yarn and with commission weavers to produce my designs.
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.
An almost complete selection of LL yarn is now available at Sheep and Shawl in Massachusetts. Head on over to... fb.me/ygUEGgRY
