I aim to create hand and mill woven cloth of the highest quality using wool predominantly sourced from flocks that roam the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbrian Fells. With a particular emphasis on handwoven tweeds, my cloth is firmly rooted in, and inspired by the local landscape.
Howgill Cloth, cushions and blankets are produced from farm wool sourced from Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales and manufactured in mills in the north of England and the Scottish Borders.
I launched my first collection in 2019, woven entirely from Laura’s Loom luxurious Yorkshire Dales Bluefaced Leicester and Hebridean yarns. My second collection launched in late summer 2020 – using a new yarn and my own brand new colour palette.
Howgill Cloth is designed for clothing or light furnishings such as cushions. It is not suitable for upholstery.
New tweeds and blankets are in the planning and will be announced via my Instagram feed and posted in my online shop.
