Registration notes: Founded in 1784, The Knockando Woolmill is one of the oldest, continually operating, rural mills in the UK and has been involved in the manufacture of traditional Scottish woollens since that date. Recognised as an important part of Scotland’s manufacturing heritage, it was awarded significant funding for its refurbishment and work commenced on the site in 2010. To commemorate this and celebrate their long tradition, a tartan has been designed and woven, inspired by the colours and atmosphere of this historic site. Rust from the tin roof, Blue from the Knockando Burn and Green from the surrounding fields all of which have played an important part in the mill’s crofting past. The mill’s distinctive window frame, which has been adopted as the company’s new logo is represented in the blue and rust element of the check.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
