The BBC's Beechgrove Garden Team joined us again this morning, filming an update about the Woolmill garden. Presenter Jim McColl was on hand (wearing his Knockando Woolmill Tweed Cap!), showing how we use selvedge from the dornier looms for composting.
The BBC Beechgrove Garden episode featuring the Woolmill will be on BBC Scotland on Thursday the 21st August, and will be on BBC2 nationwide on Sunday the 24th.
Our Beechgrove Garden Tartan scarves are still available from our online shop, head over to www.knockandowoolmill.co.uk
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.
