The warp is now being tied in...
Once is it all tied in, it will be moved into the Dornier loom in our modern workshop.
If you are not familiar with the project, we are working with Busega Scotland to raise funds for the Mayega Children’s Centre by making a minimum of 30 Shukas.
Busega Scotland describes Mayega Children’s Centre as "home for up to twenty-eight orphaned or otherwise destitute children and young people." For more information about Busega Scotland, please read our previous blog post.
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.
