Friends of the Mill

Waverley was the first woollen mill in Tasmania. Sadly, after 143 years, it’s the only woollen mill left in Australia. We believe in this Mill! We think this important piece of history is worth saving, that there’s a place in today’s world for beautiful woollen products. We’ve got equipment and people to make it work. We’ve developed new designs. The Australian Government commissioned a Waverley Baby Blanket as its gift to Princess Charlotte! But the Mill needs help.

We thank all of our generous Friends of the Mill supporters for their contribution into saving Australia’s oldest woollen mill.

SAVING A PIECE OF AUSTRALIAN HISTORY

We ran our crowd-funding campaign to raise funds to buy wool. Lots of wool. Wool is the fuel that keeps our mill going. 95% of our products are made from wool. It’s our biggest expense. And buying wool will allow us to meet demand, increase production, create jobs, innovate, and take our products to the rest of the world.

We raised over $150,000. Thanks to you! That translates to some 6 tonnes of wool, or enough to accelerate our production to fulfil the Mill’s potential.

THANK YOU, FRIENDS!
