Company History

Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the Woolmill has maintained its traditions of spinning and weaving through generations of families. The historic buildings and machinery at Knockando Woolmill were refurbished and the operating company is now wholly owned by the Knockando Woolmill Charitable Trust. It is the oldest continually operating rural mill in the country.
