The weather held out today for Kate and Sarah’s spinning lesson with local professional spinner Sally Williams. Kate and Sarah are on holiday from Canada and popped in for a guided tour of the Woolmill and were also able to try out some new skills by booking a one hour taster spinning session with Sally.
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.
