Emma-Jane and Aidan have been planting up some lovely sunflowers, pumpkins, cucumbers and snap dragons. These plants had been grown from seed at home, before coming down to the Woolmill. Annette, one of our fabulous grown-up garden volunteers, will be bringing down some dye plants that she has propagated at home next week, so the JG’s will be digging over the rest of the garden around the outdoor classroom this Sunday in preparation.
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.
