Overview

Description

Creswick Woollen Mills is an Australian family business established in 1947, in Creswick, a Victorian country town between Ballarat and Daylesford. We are now the only remaining woollen coloured spinning mill of its type left in Australia. The high quality of the mill’s products ensures its survival in a diminishing Australian industry.

Creswick Woollen Mills’ is the perfect destination for day-trippers, holiday makers and tour groups, both large and small. The mills’ tourism experience “A Very Fine Yarn” showcases the journey of fibre; all the way from its source on the alpaca, through the manufacturing process and how it ends up on the shop shelf. The exhibit gives a great insight into natural fibre, how luxurious fibres are processed and gives visitors a chance to see Australian manufacturing as it happens. As part of the journey an extensive, interactive experience allows the visitor to learn interesting and curious facts dating make to the mill’s creation. Visitors have the chance to meet our resident alpacas and purchase products made right at the mill. Come drop into two of our tourism stores in Creswick in Railway Parade, or Vincent St Daylesford where you can explore Australian range of knitwear, accessories and homewares with a focus on luxurious natural fibres.
