Dye baths were made up in our Outdoor Classroom using madder root and heather flower powdered extracts, along with harvested goldenrod flower tops from the Mill garden.
We are experimenting with different natural, traditional dyes to colour our hanks of wool by hand.
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.
