The mill now offer bookable tours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The only mill in the hebrides to do this and well worth a visit. Really interesting to see the rest of the process, especially once you have visited a weaver at work at home. All tweed given the famous Harris Tweed Orb has to have been woven at the home of the weaver. Most of the tweed is then sold by the mills, and much of it goes abroad,  but there are independent weavers who sell their tweed directly to you.
