Currently being woven on the loom in our modern workshop is one of our Strathspey Tweeds - Cruachan.
The loom holds the warp threads in place to allow the interweaving of the weft threads.
Cruachan follows autumnal colours with bold rust and sepia overchecks on a multiflecked naihead background.
The Knockando Woolmill is based in northeast Scotland and has been manufacturing woollen textiles continuously since 1784. It is recognised as a unique part of Scotland’s manufacturing heritage and was awarded significant funding for its restoration.
The Woolmill seeks to minimise its impact on the environment throughout its sourcing and manufacturing processes whilst staying true to its heritage and traditions.
All profits go to the Knockando Woolmill Trust to ensure the future of the Woolmill.
