Posted on February 20, 2015 by Emma NicolsonThis week we welcomed new work experience recruit Daniel Younie to the Woolmill. Daniel will be joining us one day a week for the next five weeks as part of a Skills for Life initiative in partnership with Moray College UHI. Daniel will be helping our production staff out with a number of different roles, here he is above with volunteer Alex Grant, and Hugh Jones sorting selvedge strips from different production runs.
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.
