The Harris Tweed® Journal

From the Loom

27th June

Today, we’re drawing inspiration from the beautiful looms that weave our iconic cloth. These warm, solid tones have been witness to countless yarns – the stories they could tell! Every metre of the Clò Mòr ever made has been passed through these timeless pieces of machinery, and by the expert weavers who operate them in their homes. From the loom, comes the cloth.
