Kerry Woollen Mills

Kerry Woollen Mills is a lovely spot to visit if you are in Co. Kerry. Over 300 years old, it is one of Ireland's last remaining working mills. Bought by the Eadie family in 1904, it is still manufacturing woollen goods today.

When you arrive first, and park in the car park, you can hear the sound of the looms, and a quick peek in the window, you can see them at work. Then into the little shop where they sell their woollen goods. They sell a range of woollen clothing, accessories, blankets, throws, etc, all made from their own fabric, or knitted using their own wool.

Towards the back of the shop, you will find a lovely range of 100% wool hanks. As well as the dyed yarn, you can also get the traditional undyed, bainin, Aran. They also sell carded wool, for spinning, and their woven fabric. These are not on display, just ask the shop assistant.

They do mail-order and all their info is on the website
