The Fibre Spectrum Story

In 1987 a group of handweavers came together to sell their wares collectively from this historic 100 year old building. The modern looms and spinning wheels used for this purpose do not differ significantly from those used in the 18th century by the early cloth weavers who laboured to produce clothing for their families.

Today, weavers and fibre artists are producing many quality items in a range of vibrant colours, textures, and styles, whilst still retaining the individuality of this ancient craft.


Fibre Spectrum are now proudly stocking
