The mill started as a sawmill and gristmill back in 1870. The business was founded by Archibald MacAusland, who had to convince the locals he wasn't crazy for starting up a mill and wanting to weave blankets.
First the wool is put through a washing machine that was built in 1949 and washed with liquid soap and hot water. After the wool is washed, it weighs almost forty percent less, now that the dirt and grease are out.
Family owned and operated, the business began operations as a sawmill and rollmill in 1870. In 1902, the company began producing yarn and in 1932 they began producing woollen blankets.
