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."

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.
