The Harris Tweed® Story from Wool to Yarn

Mill Spinning

SPUN AND DYED WOOL: The spinning machine stretches the embryo yarn and, as twist is imparted, it gains strength.

CLÒIMH AIR A SNÌOMH IS AIR A DATH: Tha an t-inneal snìomh a’ sìneadh a-mach an t-snàth agus, mar a tha an snàth air a thoinneamh bidh e a’ fàs nas làidir.
