WHAT WE LOVE
The Foxford Mill was founded on the River Moy in 1892 by a nun, Mother Agnes, to bring much needed industry to the impoverished area. In 1987 the business was rescued by a local Joe Queenan and designer Helen McAlinden was enlisted to revitalise Foxford’s offering for a new generation of customers. The café located in the original pattern and yarn rooms of Foxford Mill allows customers to view the old pattern books and the Mill manager’s old filing cabinet from 1900 with original labels still adorned.
"In collaboration with our community and creative partners, we have been manufacturing the finest wool throws and blankets for over 130 years."
