Harris Tweed Exhibition -Rheged

 

 

 

Harris tweed ramAs a result of being ‘bowled over’ by the Harris Tweed Exhibition Rheged Centre, Penrith we are giving our fabulous sterling silver sheep an inviting Spring price of £150.00.  He deserves a little attention too! Ok, so he's not a Cheviot or Scottish Black face sheep used for the Harris Tweed but he could pass for a Herdwick.  They too make good tweed.

If you are a lover of all things woolly and wild then this exhibition is a must.  The photographs are inspiring and certainly moving.  I never knew a sheep could have so many facial expressions until I opened the hefty book, From The Land, that accompanies the show. The colours on view are both rich and nostalgic; well presented displays show the deep connection between flora and fauna and the dyeing of the wool.

 I bought myself a metre of Harris Tweed from the shop and have set my heart on the book for a future celebration.

The exhibition is on until Sunday 15th May 2016.
