Posted on July 21, 2014 by Emma NicolsonA lovely day for a Beastie hunt. The Mill Pond was teaming with lots of different insects and animals - newts, frogs, toads, dragonflys, beetles, butterflys, spiders and more! Now for the charcoal - three tin boxes with their different charcoal ingredients. One with dried willow, another with found dried twigs, and lastly one with fresh twigs and willow. The grand finale - pictures of the beasties with the freshly made charcoal!
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.
