Our office and Warehouse are based in Warth Mill, Saddleworth which has always had an important role in the wool and textile industries of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Our office, still based in an old working mill, is the perfect setting for any passionate wool business to thrive.
Warth Mill has a rich history that begins with it spinning wool products in the 18th Century. After WW1, the economy shrunk significantly, so Warth Mill was taken over by the Cooperative group. This was done in order to save people’s jobs who worked here and keep it as the hub of the community. The mill was then used to create cotton for tyre cords until it became a commercial unit for businesses just like ours!
