Hi, I'm Alison and I run a small craft business, Double Time. I have always had a passion for history and traditional crafts so I weave fabric and make rugs using traditional techniques. My woollen fabric designs are mostly inspired by the wonderful landscapes across the Highlands. I have been weaving for over twelve years. I mainly weave using woollen yarn, on one of the simplest of looms, a rigid heddle loom. This means the design is based on the colours used and not through patterns in the weave.
An important part of the process for me is matching the colours of the yarns to best reflect the colours of the landscape. All yarns are sourced from the north of Scotland. Some weaves include yarns which have been hand spun and naturally dyed, using fleece from Highland sheep.
I use the fabric to make unique hand woven bags, purses and other
items. The bags often include hand woven shoulder straps or braid produced on an inkle loom.
