The Hire Shop

The new wide drum carder has arrived. This carder will yield batts of 100 grams! I just have to put together a set of documentation and we shall then be ready to hire it out.


This facility is only available on-island… though I daresay we could work something out for other parts of Orkney,  if requested.

The drum carder will cost £5 for a week. We will operate a library-type lending system, whereby an extension may be requested if no other bookings have been made. Extension weeks will cost £5 weekly. Where competing requests are made, preference will be given to spinning group members.

IMPORTANT: Washed fleece and clean fibres only, please

A Hackle and a set of Mini Combs will also be available for hire shortly.

Users may take hired equipment home for the duration of the loan, or can come and use them in the studio if they prefer (Beth will enjoy the company.) Bring cake 🙂

There is a new email address to book equipment – please use loans@ this domain or fill in the form below.
