Posted on June 23, 2015 by Emma NicolsonA busy day spent at the Grantown-on-Spey 250 celebrations, with lots of interest in the table looms and plenty of weavers in the making trying their hand to weave the Grantown 250 tartan! The tartan was designed by Lindsey Patton, who is pictured below on the right,wearing the golden gown!
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.
