Following a desire to create something beautiful from top quality Yorkshire Dales wool, I began to source fleece from local farms in 2008.
This new venture has taken Laura’s Loom into the realm of production weaving, working with small manufacturers across the north of England and into the Scottish Borders to create limited edition collections of British wool throws and scarves. I oversee the entire process, each year collecting bags of fleece from a dozen farms in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. I organise the scouring of the wool, spinning and dyeing of the yarn, and produce the designs for weaving. All of my products are made from 100% British wool and all are made entirely within the British Isles.
Award winning, limited edition, ethical textiles, a year in the making

“Your throws are very beautiful, the very special appeal has to be the sustainability and traceability of all your wool. It is such a great concept…”
