A bit out of the way from most of Skye's attractions, I'm glad we were able to stop for a quick visit into Shilasdair. There were quite a few varieties of yarn and many colors to choose from. Skeins seemed a bit on the shorter side, but I'm used to being able to pick up giant skeins in the US!... 更多

My wife is a knitter, and she wanted to visit this shop which is a challenge to find and get to even in the best of weather. However, if you are a knitter, this is a holy pilgrimage and well worth every mile of the drive. It is seven miles down a single lane road off a B level road,... 更多

What a great little shop that actually turned out to be a worldwide supplier of naturally dyed wool from its humble location! Friendly owner and lots to see and buy!
So pleased you enjoyed your trip and thanks for taking the time to review my shop. 更多
Housed in wonderful old buildings, stocks their own naturally dyed yarns along with patterns and needles etc, and also sells garments made from the yarn. Access track is unsuitable for anything larger than a car. Camper van drivers please note.
Loved the colours. Somewhat disappointed that we could not get wool from the St Kilda breeds, which was sold out. Having been to St Kilda that would have been a nice bonus. Nevertheless, the service, experience and the range of yarns available were very much worth the visit. A wonderful place to stop and browse on the Waternish

A bit of a trek but well worth the effort. Delightful shop and gorgeous yarns. Helpful staff with great selection of ready made clothing, yarns, patterns and accessories. Buy more than you think you should…. they do mail order if you hesitated.
Glad you made the journey to find us - sadly you probably didn't get much of a view from the... 更多
Fascinating look into the wool-harvesting and hand-dying (with NATURAL plant-based dyes) of yarns! Lovely shop with an AMAZING view! I'm not a knitter, but we spent a good deal of time looking through knitting kits for the do-it-yourselfers, as well as browsing a wide variety of beautiful, hand-made sweaters, shawls, shirts, mittens, hats, and scarves. I bought a remarkably-soft scarf... 更多

As a spinner and a natural dyer, I was in seventh heaven here. This store has a variety of yarns that are either the natural color of the wool or dyed with natural dyes (plant materials, insects, lichens, etc) only. The colors achieved are magnificent. Any one interested in fiber arts must go here. The setting is beautiful and not... 更多

Having visited nearby Skyeskyns, I was not allowed to leave Waternish until we had visited this amazing yarn place. Hard to describe for a non-knitter like me but the buildings and the interior of the shop were worth the visit alone, let alone the amazing views over the Atlantic towards the Hebrides. While she browsed the lovely natural dyed yarns... 更多
I'm so pleased that you both enjoyed your trip to the shop and the view. I think we can say... 更多
If you are a fiber person do NOT visit this shop if you seriously don't want to buy more yarn!! Their yarns are simply lovely, beautifully dyed, and a joy to knit. Also, they will mail yarn out, so there's no excuse not to stock up whilst here. I decided after my visit (where I restricted my purchases to what... 更多
Thank you for your lovely review and thanks also for pointing out that we do offer a mailing service to... 更多
