Australian owned and operated, the mill is located in north-eastern Victoria on Yorta Yorta Nation country.
Wangaratta Woollen Mills was officially opened in August 1923. The mill produced high quality worsted yarns and was soon acknowledged to be the most progressive spinner of high quality knitting yarns, becoming Australia's largest mainland mill.
In 2017 Australian Country Spinners was purchased by Bendigo Woollen Mills. Wangaratta Woollen Mills has since had its original name reinstated and also its original purpose – to be a wholly Australian owned and operated spinning mill which produces the finest quality commercial and hand knitting yarns.
Today, the business employs around 100 people both at the Mill in Wangaratta and in the pattern, design and marketing teams in Melbourne.
Our Houndsome hand-knitted scarves are crafted from pure Australian wool, spun by the good folk at the Mill; we're proud to use this beautiful yarn in our products.
