Our 1775 tartan scarves are also back in stock! The 1775 tartan is the first in our range of Heritage Tartans - first woven in 1775, this tartan is believed to be an 'apprentice piece'. The pattern is complex and would have shown the skills of the young hand weaver, especially due to the numerous colours used. The bright pink tartan base has overchecks of navy and lime, creating a vibrant pattern. The 1775 tartan is also available as a throw, tie, teddy bear and cushion.
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.
