When Marion Campbell died she was one of the last traditional Harris Tweed weavers. She clipped the wool from the sheep, spun it into yarn, and dyed it with moss, flowers and heather.

She then wove it into a rich tweed on a rickety wooden loom. Her cloth was so popular around the world that she could never statisfy demand.
