MacAusland's Woollen Mills is one of the Island's oldest businesses.
The mill started as a sawmill and gristmill back in 1870.
The business was founded by Archibald MacAusland, who had to convince the locals he wasn't crazy for starting up a mill and wanting to weave blankets. Business operations were later assumed by Archibald's son, Fred MacAusland. The business is now the only mill in Atlantic Canada still producing traditional blankets of 100% virgin wool.Wash in cool water ,mild soap ,lay flat to dry ,shape while still wet.
