About Laura's Loom

I design and create weaving yarns and woven fabrics using predominantly British wools which I source directly from local farms in the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria.  I work closely with British weaving mills to produce a range of scarves and throws designed by me and woven from my yarn.  The yarn is also suitable for tweed and has been successfully used by knitters and tapestry weavers.  I also weave bespoke and commission pieces in a variety of yarns on my handlooms.

Cumbrian Summer Blankets

With its striking two-sided geometric design, our Cumbrian Summer Blanket is a colourful delight.  Use it as an extra ‘sheet’ in Winter or as a lightweight layer on cool summer nights.  In the north of England we often need a blanket year-round.   This one will brighten up your day in every season.

Our newest blanket is available in five bright colourways:  Grass (green), Sky (blue), Damson (purple), Madder (red) and Rust (orange-yellow), all offset by a subtle silver grey base.  We have produced a limited run of just 10 in each colourway so order yours quickly!
