At home – within the old high-walled kitchen garden of An Gàrradh Mòr, we spin, dye, knit, crochet, weave and felt with wool (especially the black wool from our own flock of Hebridean sheep) and other natural fibres and materials. Using the traditional tools and techniques we’ve grown familiar with over nearly forty years, we produce a variety of unique and high quality yarns, which also we make into garments and accessories.
What we make that isn’t for ourselves and our family is offered for sale at the Hebridean Woolshed – a small shop that stands within the walled garden, just by the South Gate. There, in addition to the yarns, garments and accessories, there’s a range of patterns and kits for our own designs.
Everything in the Hebridean Woolshed is made by us and embodies the values that guide all our work : homely, skilled, hand-made, inspired, intuitive, high quality, local, sustainable. Oh, and personal : something bought at the Hebridean Woolshed is bought from us – Jonathan or Denise, or both – in person.
The Hebridean Woolshed‘s garden shop is open Monday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm, April to September. As there’s just the two of us, and as turnarounds for our two holiday lets can be any day of the week, we may be closed for a few hours during the day … or, very occasionally, to take some time off! If you’re planning a special visit, contact us the day before to check whether we’ll be open.
Some of what we sell in the ‘garden shop’ – millspun yarns, kits, and most of our Hand-Made Tale offers – are also available in our on-line shop.
Most recent news about The Hebridean Woolshed :
I’ve been making two new designs of cushions in Harris Tweed weaves.
They differ only in the colour/pattern of pure new wool tweed fabric. In both designs, a plain tweed in the centre third of the front is also used for the back. A quality cushion pad, sewn-in, is filled with goose feather and down. The cushions measure 45cm x 35cm. The photo shows three cushions complete and ready for despatch, and a number of others ready for inserting a cushion pad.
The cushions are priced at £40.00, bought from our little shop in the walled garden, here in the island of South Uist.
