The Hattersley Loom     

The Hattersley Loom is the cornerstone of production at Bare Cloth. Hattersley Looms are industrial looms made in England, powered by the weaver. Hattersley Looms are most commonly known as the looms used to weave Harris Tweed in Scotland. Because of their rarity and age, Hattersley looms are very hard to locate in working condition. In fact our Hattersley was assembled from three different Hattersley Looms in London England by Daniel Harris of the London Cloth Company. Keila McCracken traveled to London in the summer of 2015 to be trained by Daniel Harris on Bare Cloths original loom. During her time in London she learned the basics of using and working with these majestic machines.
