Trefriw Woollen Mill
Heritage and Culture Attractions North Wales
See the weaving and water powered turbine at our working mill museum.
We generate our own electricity and carry out all the processes from fleece to fabric on machines which are over fifty years old. Weaving and the turbine can be viewed Monday – Friday from mid February to mid December.
Additional machines such as carding engines, spinning mules and warping mill run according to production needs and can be viewed between Easter and the end of October.
We manufacture traditional Welsh bedspreads, travelling rugs and tweeds and our fabrics are made up into garments, accessories and soft furnishings. Our products are available in the mill shop along with pure wool knitwear and accessories and sheepskin goods. Tea, coffee, bara brith, Welsh cakes, scones and cakes are served in our tearoom.
See below for times for hand spinning and rag rug making demonstrations, or “try weaving yourself” on a small handloom and the Weaver’s Garden with plants which supply natural dyes and fibres.
