Geelong is the gateway to Victoria’s spectacular surf coast with its pristine beaches, national parks and exemplary produce. Proudly, Geelong is a member of the UNESCO Creative City Network as a City of Design.
The mill is in the heart of one of Australia’s historic wool and textile regions, at the original site of the Geelong Returned Sailors and Soldiers Woollen and Worsted Cooperative Manufacturing Company, established in 1920.
Houndsome has collaborated with the Geelong Weaving Mill team to produce our exclusive range of Patty blankets and pure wool fabric for our Duncan sportcoats. Woven from surplus wool yarn leftover from commercial production, our Houndsome check fabrics are made from Australian certified eco wool. As a part of its ongoing best practice in sustainably across all sourcing and manufacturing processes, the Mill works closely with its suppliers to ensure traceability of all yarn stock.
The talented people of Geelong Weaving Mill are dedicated to their craft and to offering quality Australian products that are made to last. By purchasing our Houndsome blankets and sportcoats, you are not only supporting local manufacturing but sustaining important skill retention of proud and historic traditions in fibre craft and weaving.
