Giving an old Beast some TLC

September 24, 2018

Well, we have started weaving on the Dobcross Loom at Gower Heritage Centre.  Keep on eye on our Facebook posts for more information as to when we will be in the mill.

 

She is an incredible beast of engineering but it is fair to say that she can be a cranky beast too!

 

If you pop by whilst we are in the mill you will probably see us bent double tending and mending and adjusting.  Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much but we love the old girl nonetheless!

 

The fabric being woven at the moment is a practice roll to get the loom back up to her best so there is plenty of trial and error going on.  We hope that next year will bring our very first, home grown and designed roll of commercial woollen fabric and it is sooooo exciting!

 

We would love you to subscribe to our website for updates and like/share our FB, Instagram and Twitter accounts.  Spread the word!  The beast lives!
