WHAT WE LOVE
A woollen mill has stood at the site of the Cushendale Woollen Mill for over 800 years. Since 1778 six generations of the Cushens family have been crafting textiles, spinning yarn and weaving blankets that are showcased in the mill’s shop. From the shop views into the mill and storyboards give context to the brand’s unique heritage and product range of authentic Irish wool, lambswool and mohair yarns and blankets.
"Our family, the Cushens, have been involved in woollen textile manufacturing since the 18th century. We are acutely aware of the history and the heritage of which we are part. Every day we walk in the footsteps of our ancestors."
