Originally part of a small croft, the Woolmill was passed down through generations of families who worked the land as well as carding, spinning and weaving with the local wool. Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the Woolmill still uses machinery dating from 1870 as well as more efficient, modern machinery.
The Woolmill is one of the few surviving examples of a traditional district mill, and worked with local farmers by converting the fleece from their sheep into cloth and blankets.
The Woolmill is now developing new products as well as re-vitalising old ones, such as the production of natural knitting yarns and bespoke tartans & tweeds. Contact Us if you would like to discuss ordering bespoke woven products.
