WeaversLoft is situated on a working farm in Hampshire.
Julie started out teaching spinning, lacemaking and basic weaving with supplies for students and some handspun yarns and finished pieces.
A natural progression was to use the fleece from the sheep in the fields around us and Emma has taken up the challenge to dye fleece and yarns and is beginning to create her own patterns and kits.
Passing on our skills is very important to us and Julie will continue to teach spinning and basic weaving while Emma teaches dyeing and more advanced weaving techniques.
It has become a place where customers are now friends, where we all share our enthusiasm and love of natural fibres and the skills to use them.
