Exclusive to Midwinter Yarns!
Introducing the Tweed Edition of our popular Ochils Bags
Continuing in our desire to use local materials for our handmade project bags, we have turned to perhaps the most beautiful material Scotland has to offer: Shetland Wool Tweed.
Scottish tweeds offer the most incredible depth of colours and the heathered tones perfectly reflect the wild Scottish landscapes - it is a material that I could just look and look at and never quite grow tired of.
We are incredibly lucky to have some truly skilled weavers amongst our friends, and this stunning cloth has been created by Elliot's Shed who hand weave their fabrics in the Scottish Borders.
The Ochils Bag itself is a roomy and sturdy project bag hand made by us here at Midwinter HQ, and features a triple internal pocket with space for notebooks and a pen. The outer layer is a smooth 100% Shetland Wool, and the lining is a sturdy cotton in our trademark warm orange.
The inside view of the bag is shown easily containing 500gr of yarn to give you an idea of capacity.
The bag closes with a roll-down construction, so it can roll down to however small the contents allow and grow along with your project. The metal clasp then forms a handy strap to carry the bag with, or hang off your arm if working on the go.

Tiny Herringbone, as the name indicates, is a cute, unusually small scale version of the classic herringbone tweed, woven in a combination of plum purple shades and light blues.
