In a town long famed for the production of high quality and beautifully coloured fabrics, we work with British Wool to produce our range of Tarras Tweed, a soft handling Shetland cloth which has found favour for many end uses. From an extensive palette of richly hued melange yarns we attempt to capture in our wool tweed fabric the vast array of seasonal tones that Nature provides in the surrounding hills and valleys.
We Owe You An Apology
We had an unprecedented success at the recent Woolfest which has resulted in our tweed shelves looking very bare. Every effort is being made to replenish the stocks as quickly as possible, please have patience with us in the meantime. We are very sorry if this impacts on your making schedule.
Our next sales outing will be Yarndale in Skipton at the end of September followed in November by St. Abbs Wool Festival at Eyemouth, we look forward to seeing you there.
Rare Breed Rugs
For our range of Rare Breed Rugs we source all our wool in fleece direct from the farms in the Border hills surrounding the Tarras.
In the same fabric as the Tarras Tweed, here at Elliott's Shed we make the Elliott Plaid which is our take on the traditional Clan tartan.
Holm Tapestry Frame
The Holm Tapestry Frame was designed and registered by us, each one is individually constructed to order at the Shed.
The Campaign for Wool

We design, weave and produce a collection of All Wool Shetland Tweeds which are for sale by the metre from this site, from The Shed and also on Ebay.
The "Quotations" above are lines taken from the writings of Will Ogilvie, a Borders Poet.
"The weaving of soft wool tweed is synonymous with Langholm, it owes it's very being to the tweed. Set at the confluence of the Esk, the Ewes and the Wauchope, wool and wool tweed has been processed here for centuries"
"The seemingly endless variations of the moorland colours and the very essence of the Border hills seep into the wool tweeds woven in these mills"
