HARRIS TWEED is more than a unique handwoven textile. It is also the story of a real place with a rich history and culture, beautiful landscape and vibrant communities located in Scotland’s remote and fascinating Outer Hebrides islands.
Situated in the heart of Stornoway, at the home of the Harris Tweed Authority, Sgeulachd a’ Chlò Mhòir/The Story of Harris Tweed will introduce you to the history and development of the HARRIS TWEED industry. Discover the processes from wool to yarn; watch weavers work the looms; marvel at the pattern, colour and range of this most fine cloth.
Weavers’ Demonstrations (Summer season): Thursdays 2pm-3pm & Fridays 1:30pm-2:30pm
