Knockando Woolmill has been producing textiles since at least 1784. After more than two centuries of continuous production, Knockando Woolmill faced an uncertain future.
The buildings, Category A listed and cited as 'internationally significant' by Historic Scotland, were in a critical condition and the machinery in sore need of renovation. Once the current weaver, Hugh Jones retired, his specialist knowledge and skills would go with him and an important piece of Scottish history would disappear forever.
Following an extensive restoration period where all the Category A listed Victorian machinery was painstakingly dismantled, restored and rebuilt, the Woolmill is now fully operational.
Deep in the Spey Valley, Knockando Woolmill continues an unbroken 200 year old tradition, producing woven fabric on its historic looms.
Knockando Woolmill has always been at the heart of the local community. Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the mill has since maintained its traditions of spinning and weaving through generations of families.
All profits go to the Knockando Woolmill Trust to ensure the future of the Woolmill.
