Custom Woolen Mills is a small, family-owned and operated woolen mill. Using sheep’s wool purchased from local farmers and turn-of-the-century industrial revolution machinery, we produce carded wool, yarns, machine-knit socks, 100% wool fill bedding, and hand-knit garments. Join us on August 15 for a tour through the mill and learn how wool from the farm becomes clothing. Tour the mill and dye plant gardens, and take a look through our little yarn shop! We’re practicing COVID 19 safe business practices, so please be prepared to wait your turn for viewing indoor areas based on occupancy numbers.
