We were visited by Siemens UK earlier this year, who wanted to see all the processes we carry out when making our quality wool products...
Produced before our restoration, as part of our fundraising efforts, this film explains the importance of the Woolmill.
In the summer of 1979 the mill featured in a TV documentary. We had recently got the carding and spinning running again for the first time since we took over in 1976 and were busy spinning natural yarn for a large order for Japan.
Here's the waterwheel at Knockando Woolmill. It hasn't turned since 1949. Last year we took it apart and fully re-bulit it and on Friday 15th June 2012 we ran some water through for the first time - so far so good!
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.
