About Nundle Woollen Mill

Nundle Woollen Mill

Visitors to Nundle Woollen Mill are sometimes surprised that it’s so young, having first opened on Australia Day 2001.

What gives the Mill its aura of history? Perhaps it’s the machinery housed inside. Most of it has been sourced from long dormant mills and lovingly restored.

In our regular tours, visitors marvel at these antique machines working their magic to turn bales of Australian merino wool into yarns in the vibrant colours for which we have become famous.

Everything we do is driven by three passions.

We want to add an element of entertainment to craft supplies.

We want our customers to feel attractive and fashionable in the garments we sell.

And we want to create a reconnection with Australia’s wool heritage.

Many of our customers have become our friends. They share photos of the garments and soft furnishings they create with our yarns. They share patterns. They share stories. They share tips with younger knitters.

Some of our customers learnt to knit from their country grandmothers. Some knit with friends in inner city cafés. Some have turned their love of knitting into thriving businesses. Others create fine art.

We hope you find what you’re looking for in our online shop. But we would love to welcome you to the Mill. Nundle is about 4½ hours from Sydney and 50 minutes from Tamworth.

We have been finalists and winners in the Australian Tourism Awards, New South Wales Tourism Awards and Inland Tourism Awards.

We welcome over 30,000 visitors each year. Some are independent travellers. Others come as a group - Car Clubs, Motorbike Clubs, Probus, Lions Clubs, Knitters, Spinners and Weavers, caravan groups and family groups, just to name a few.

We offer a free guided tour of the Woollen Mill. We are also happy to arrange tours at other times by appointment. You can find details here. Please contact our friendly team to discuss your requirements.
