a s t a i r journey

Taking you on a journey across the Three Peaks of South Uist, Astair pauses and takes in the breathtaking scenery, heritage and features of this rugged land. Though small in stature; Thacla, Beinn Choradail, and Bheinn Mhòr present a side to Uist that is today wild in spirit though steeped in history.

Born from a partnership between Claddach Farm, Fife, and Uist Wool, Astair talks of many journeys.

  • A journey into the unknown. Working with alpaca fibre has been a new learning curve on the mill floor.
  • A journey from Fife to Uist with the Carrs of Claddach Farm.
  • A journey through the islands, exploring the lesser-known land and history of the Eastern side of South Uist.

Coire- Corrie

Millions of years of glacial snow and ice erosion formed this forbidding bowl in the mountainside, the shadows of which shift with the seasons.

Coire is a creamy fawn/white yarn and a blend of white alpaca with white Cheviot wool (50/50 blend).

Uist Wool is a new venture inspired by co-operative values. The original idea to build a new Mill in North Uist emerged from a collective will to find a fresh purpose for local fleece that would reconnect the community with their cultural heritage of wool-working.
