Posted on October 30, 2014 by Emma NicolsonSt Thomas School's P6 and 7 teacher Mrs Francis has been working with Crofting Connections who provided funding for a 24” ridged heddle loom. As a precursor to their visit to the Woolmill next Wednesday, Learning and Outreach Co-ordinator Garance visited them to help them assemble their loom, give them a background about the Woolmill, it's heritage and what the Woolmill is producing just now.
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.
