Woven at Farfield Mill
The Mill is home to a working Dobcross Power loom and a Somet loom. Visitors can usually observe them producing woollen cloth in attractive patterns and colours of Fridays and Saturdays. To see these looms in action today is an uncommon experience in the United Kingdom. The Mill is very fortunate to have David McDowell as Farfield's master weaver. He brings with him the specialist skills needed to operate our heritage looms.
Visitors are able to purchase from our Mill shop - knee and travel rugs, and throws, woven here at Farfield Mill by our Master Weaver David on the Dobcross and Somet looms.
