Hats and scarves - good in the snow

It is a long time since I have had time to post, but I am making the most of the relative quiet of the Christmas holidays to catch up.
We have now had snow lying for ten days - and I really can't remember when we last had that, I am sure it must have been last century!
We have been out in the snow taking some photographs our our hats and scarves. These are designed to keep out the Scottish weather so this is ideal weather to show their worth.
Our hats and scarves are made of Harris Tweed which is handwoven in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. In this picture you see George and Catherine with their dog Fly playing in the snow in our back garden. Catherine is wearing a "Mairi" hat - a traditional bonnet style and George is wearing an "Angus"-the style most favoured by men. Both are wearing fleece lined embroidered scarves.
In the next photograph, Mary is sporting our "Peggy" hat - a flat Harris Tweed crown teamed with a padded polar fleece band designed to sit snug around the head keeping your whole head warm and cosy.
We do several other styles of hats and we can make them in just about any colour. To order visit our website at
