Right now on the Victorian Dobcross is our house Knockando Woolmill Tartan.
Looking at the colours in the tartan - Rust represents the tin roof, Blue represents the Knockando Burn and Green represents the surrounding fields. All of these things have played an important part in the mill’s crofting past.
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.
