Laura's Loom

Laura's Loom

I am an artisan weaver based in Sedbergh in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Each summer I collect raw fleece from local farms and work closely with English and Scottish Border mills to spin, dye, weave and knit it into 100% British wool blankets, scarves and socks. I sample all of my designs on my handlooms before passing the baton to experienced mill weavers to produce limited editions. Yarns are spun and dyed with an end product in mind. My colours and designs are inspired by and reflect the northern landscape in which I live and work.

Noticeboard

Throughout 2020 Laura's Loom is donating 10% from all online website sales to the Cumbria Community Foundation to support isolated and vulnerable groups across our county. The beauty of the landscape so often masks the difficulties that many rural communities face. Help me to help them by purchasing some of our beautiful products made from locally sourced wool. We buy our wool directly from the farmers which helps the local economy.
