This is a bit hidden but has an extensive selection of high quality wool, at a premium price. Much of the space is dedicated to felting materials and projects. The lady at reception was helpful.

The Belfast Mini Mills was suggested by a convenience store operator where we had stopped. The mill was a fantastic find and highly recommend it to anyone interested in the manufacture of animal haircloth. It seems that the machines are made by the men and the manufacture and tour are given by the women. The owner's wife showed us around even though we had arrived 20 minutes before opening. The different machines do the carding of the animal hair, dying, spinning and felting processes. I say animal hair because they are set up to do any animal hair that comes their way. A most interesting tour. They have a store that carries products that are made by some of their clients.

A friend and I stopped at the Belfast Mini Mills on our vacation to PEI. We did a short Needle Felting class and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Neither of us had ever tried this art before and the staff was super friendly, visiting and offering coffee/tea as we worked on our project. It was only $10 to make a card, all supplies included, and we were there for 2 hours!

Everyone who visits Belfast Mini Mills has a wonderful experience. Even those who are not crafty with yarns and felts an all such. The operators are fantastic sisters, welcoming, knowledgable, fossil-hunters, world traveler. They can turn the hair of a huge range of animals (dogs, cat, yaks, sheep, llamas and alpacas, musk ox - just to name a few) into yarn. Fine yarn, coarse yarn, must-strands, whatever twist you need. You can title along your favourite photo and they will make a base felt for you and give you the various colours of yarns to reproduce your photo in felt - gorgeous! Oh, if you don't know how to do it, they will teach you - and your kid if you want. Great project for a day that is not so nice on a beach. They do tours of their mill and retail shop that are so interesting even husbands become enthralled! Oh, did I say that their main job, with their menfolk, is designing and building machines to do all the tasks of yarn making. The machines are sold all over the world, all across North America, South America, Australia and New Zealand, South America, Kazakhstan; the islands of Scotland and the mountains of Bolivia. It is nothing short of fascinating to ruminate on the places they sell their mills. I daydream of accompanying the installers and handing the tools to them as needed. Heck I would even carry their luggage for them. A world-class operation run by wonderful people right here in Prince Edward Island, Our Island. Who woulda thunk it?

We found every imaginable colour of wool! The shelves were stacked with wonderful things - mittens, socks, felted items, place mats, fuzzy, furry toys, If it's made from wool you will surely find it here.
