Cushendale Woollen Mills

Set on the millrace of the River Duiske, Cushendale Woollen Mills is a family-run business in rural Kilkenny that stretches back 5 generations, crafting natural-fibre textiles in mohair, Irish wool and merino lambswool. The company dyes, cards and spins their own natural fibre yarn. The pure water supply taken from the river Duiske is the mill’s most valued natural resource and one of the principal reasons why they can produce textiles of such distinctive colour and texture. They support Irish sheep farmers, selecting their finest wool to produce a natural Irish product that stands the test of time. The Zwartbles range was designed with Suzanna Crampton, Director of Zwartbles Ireland. www.zwartblesireland.com
