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.
Our Pure New Shetland Wool
throws are generously sized at
180cm x 150cm/6ft x 5ft
with purled edges.
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.
Features a collection of 100 plus,
individual colours and numerous
small design sections in one
fabric, available by the metre.

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"
