The Harris Tweed® Journal

Bliadhna Mhath Ùr

31st December

It’s written in the cloth we weave,

the story of the year we leave.


A blend of fibres and the memories they hold,

the light against the dark, the yarns can be told.


A woven love bound together in warp and weft,

the promise of the shuttle’s return from right to left.


A time to reflect at this year-end,

no cloth is perfect, with mistakes to mend.


An excited heart beating to the clickety-clack, the rhythm of the feet,

Every blessing to all, hurrah – another is complete!


‘Weaving the Year’ by Alannah Macneill
