Join the team at Creswick Woollen Mill to celebrate the Ballarat Heritage Weekend 2024.

Creswick Woollen Mills – The original Recycler. ‘Necessity is The Mother of all Invention’.

Complimentary fibre packs, take away your very own thread of history. Perfect for ‘show and tell’ to all your friends and family and classmates.
