The Story of Halifax Mill
Wild about Wool
Halifax Spinning Mill is a true Yorkshire Woollen Mill based in Bridlington. Our move to Bridlington in 2019 saw us venture into a newer building and take on the task of moving approximately 80 tonnes of machinery as a family. This was a long process and we are very proud to say that we are now officially once again up and running and producing high quality British products.
At the mill, we have a passion for adding value to the vast amounts of wool we have available to us in Britain. We are enthusiastic about promoting the array of rare breed wools we have on our doorstep.
A little bit about Paul
Paul has worked in the textile industry for almost 40 years, progressing from a carding apprentice to a mill manager where he produced tonnes of manufactured yarn every week. Due to the demise of the commercial textile industry in Yorkshire and after years of working so closely with the industry since his youth, Paul decided to take the big step of setting up his own mill.
The making of the mill
Halifax Spinning Mill is a full-sized mill housing a 62 feet long carding machine which weighs in at 24 tonnes. However, the mill is tailored to suit smaller batches of fibre. Using this unusual setup, we are able to provide a high quality, bespoke service, making yarn to suit each customer’s personal requirements.
Your imagination is our inspiration
Having so much experience in the industry, Paul is happy to discuss any options or queries you may have in order to get the most out of your fleece. We are able to work with many varieties of fibre and offer a range of processes.
Where are we now?
As we have already mentioned 2019 was a big year! It saw us celebrate our 10th anniversary, and we did it in style. We moved over 80 tonnes of machinery to our new premises in Bridlington and set about opening a shop which we hope will educate and inspire a new audience.
