Tying in the new warp (Slioch) to the old (Conival)... Inspired by the rugged landscape of the Scottish Highlands, this sporting tweed has been at the heart of the Woolmill's production for many years.
This robust fabric is made to endure the rigours of outdoor pursuits but is equally practical in the home as tweed upholstery fabric, great for sofas, chairs and curtains.
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.
