Almost half the workforce at the mill were laid off four months ago
Workers at the Harris Tweed industry's largest mill are to be put on a three day week.
Almost half the workforce at the Kenneth MacKenzie mill in Stornoway on Lewis lost their jobs four months ago.
Most of the remaining workers - numbering about 40 - are to work from Monday to Wednesday from next week.
It was understood the mill's owner, businessman Brian Haggas, has told staff the arrangement would be reviewed in January.
Meanwhile, Western Isles Nationalist MSP Alasdair Allan said he was continuing to press for an investment fund to stabilise the traditional peaks and troughs in demand in the industry.
The islands' SNP MP Angus MacNeil previously said this would keep weavers working at the quieter tail-end of the year.
Labour's prospective parliamentary hopeful for the Western Isles, Donald John MacSween, has accused the Scottish Government of refusing to provide the fund.
However, Mr Allan denied this was the case.
The government said ministers were committed to supporting a strong and vibrant Harris Tweed sector and would work with the industry liaison group to assist its sustainable development and growth.
