About Proggy and Tweed

Proggy and Tweed

Beautiful accessories designed and handcrafted in Scotland in merino wool and Harris Tweed.

I learned to knit when I was 3 with yellow needles and red wool and haven't stopped learning since. I can't remember a time when I didn't make things for my teddy, dolls, myself, friends and family - then word of mouth customers! I did that for a long time around other work commitments before deciding to sell online and open my Etsy shop.
I love all the colours and textures of wool, whether fibre, yarn or woven. Harris Tweed is a particular favourite and I use it as often as I can, along with my handmade felt.
Colours and textures, from all around, inspire me and I love experimenting with different techniques.
My passion is felting and I am currently working on a new collection of wet and nuno felted accessories to wear and for the home. All my work is to my own design and I am happy to discuss commissions for anything from a headband to a jacket.
Since giving up my job and starting Proggy and Tweed I feel amazingly lucky being able to devote my time to something I absolutely love. I work from home in Perthshire, where I live with my husband Greg, dog Mabel and cats Daisy and Rufus. I'm never happier than when I'm in my workroom, supervised by Mabel, up to my elbows in wool and tweed!
