Between 2010 and 2012 we wove cloth which is used in the blockbuster feature film "The Hobbit".
And for the Hebridean Celtic Festival 2011 Headline act - KT Tunstall - we supplied some Harris Tweed together with Breanish Tweed for a jacket designed and made by Diggory Brown, South Dell, Lewis.
Our Tweed was the Orange and Brown broken stripes.

Scalpay Linen also featured twice on BBC R4 Womans Hour in 2011 - the first time when Sheila was interviewed by Dani Mitzman in connection with a new book - Harris Tweed From Land to Street by Lara Platman; and again as part of the occasional series "How Womans Hour Changed My Life", when Sheila recounted the story of how she was first attracted to handspinning some thirty years ago.
