Muckross Bindery

Muckross Bookbindery

At our Bookbindery workshop we employ traditional bookbinding skills, with modern conservation methods, to provide the very best, all-round, care for items on paper.

We undertake rare book and paper repairs on early printed books, manuscripts and maps, as well as on leather bindings and vellum documents. The only materials that we use are of archival quality and are acid free.

Mucros Weaving

At our Weaving workshop we weave scarves using only the finest quality yarns on Hattersly looms that are almost 200 years old. Because all our scarves are individually woven they have a selvedge on each side ensuring they will last and its gives each scarf its quality finish.

All of our colourful products are made from premium yarns such as wool, mohair and alpaca. We complement our ranges with Ladies and Gents Tweed headwear in both traditional and contemporary style.
