Laura's Loom

Laura's Loom

I am an artisan weaver based in the lovely market town of Sedbergh in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. I collect wool from local farms and work closely with spinning, weaving and knitting mills in England and Scotland to produce a range of fine yarns, scarves, throws and socks. I also design and weave an eclectic mix of handwoven fabrics inspired by the subtle colours and textures of Britain’s northern landscapes. Laura’s Loom celebrates Britain’s tremendous woollen heritage and the craft of weaving.

Noticeboard

I will be exhibiting once again at Woolfest this year. This, the UK's original wool festival, is still going strong after more than a decade. June 23rd-24th, 2017, Cockermouth auction mart. It's worth visiting for the scenery alone never mind all the wool and sheep in attendance!
