The sites below are all really great information places or resources. At the bottom are yarn suppliers for weaving.
Linda Irving Felt Artist
Linda is an extremely talented felt artist, who also promotes local creatives in her gallery called The Mull of Gallery (it is based near the Mull of Galloway). She now stocks my own products in her gallery, which I am so excited about, not least being amongst such talented people. If you are ever down our way for a holiday, a visit to Linda is a must and you are guaranteed a warm and lovely welcome (like I do when I visit for a coffee!)
Glenda is local to me and is an indie dyer and incredible artist. On her website for yarn, Quirky Paintbrush, she refers to her yarns being suitable for knitters and crocheters, but having seen and felt her scrumptious yarns, I can tell you they are very suitable for weaving and would create beautiful work! Take a look - you won’t be disappointed.
The Threshing Barn
They took over the business of P and M Woolcraft after retirement, so have a huge range of equipment and supplies.
This lady has alsorts, including lots of fibre people and resources to take a look at.
The Loom Exchange
For second hand looms and wheels. You need to be careful to buy a second hand loom or wheel from a weaver or spinner, so that they can be honest about it's working. I see some on ebay and my flesh crawls. If it looks too cheap, it is too cheap. If the seller uses unfamiliar terminology, it means they don't know what they are talking about and theloom or wheel may not meet your needs.
World of Wool
For supplies of dyed wool etc. They stock colours of fleece other than merino. The shop is a treasure trove!
Again, supplies of dyed wool. The sheds are amazing, and they sell ashford and kromski equipment, plus all the little bits and pieces. I have family nearby, so a great excuse for a visit!
The WEavers and Spinners groups on facebook are wonderful. There is amazing information from people who weave or spin and have experience. Worth being on the beast for the groups alone perhaps?
The Online Guild of Spinners Weavers Dyers
If you can't get to a meeting with a guild, then the online can fill the gap. Very reasonable subscription rates.
For supplies of natural dyes (and all round awesomeness), Helen is a font of information. Her natural dye books are truly amazing.
Again for natural dye supplies.
I find ravelry a bit daunting. I love it if I have time to have a good look round. I am in some wonderful groups and if you manage to buy a second hand wheel from one of the spinning groups, you can be fairly sure it will be a good one.
Her book, Wild Colour, is my bible for natural dyes. For more information take a look at
This is an American magazine, published four times a year. The amazing Jacey Boggs Faulkner is behind it. Each magazine concentrates on a theme, giving brilliant detail.
These are the some of the websites I have found who supply yarn for weaving.
