Grimsay, North Uist, Outer Hebrides.
Uist Wool runs a spinning Mill & Wool Centre on the island of Grimsay in North Uist, part of the Outer Hebrides an island archipelago off the north west coast of Scotland.
Uist Wool is based on the principles of People, Planet & Profit, seeking to benefit the many, establishing sustainable practices and creating a viable enterprise to support the communities of the Outer Hebrides.
Provenance is the foundation to our story. Wool is sourced locally, and throughout the Highlands & Islands, selected with care and processed at the Mill with a high degree of quality control at every stage of production. Our pallet is based on natural un-dyed wool colours and blends spun into knitting yarns or single ply for weaving.
The Mill regularly commissions independent Scottish weavers to create woven textiles that showcase the ingrained characteristics of different wool types – traditional heritage weight Harris Tweed, fine wraps & scarves in Scottish Merino, warm & durable blankets designed to keep the winter chills at bay.
