A lovely customer sent us in this photo... a lovely knitted rug using our selvedge.
"I have visited the mill several times when on holiday and love it and how it has developed. A couple of years ago I bought one of the selvedge edge kits to make a knotted mat. Although I do many types of crafts I found it hard to do the knotting to my own satisfaction despite several attempts. I recently got it out again and decided to knit it into a mat using large needles and am pleased with the result."
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.
