This is worth a visit when in Ross. There is a good shop and a small museum about sheep/wool and the area. Nice place to spend an hour or so.

Wife wanted to call and check out the wooden jumper products. She was a bit disappointed in the stock. Their is a museum attached that has free entry and is very well presented. If you are in the area it is well worth a call in.

Sounded like a bit of a bore, but it was surprisingly very interesting! Certainly informative about the area and its history, and the processes involved in wool production. The samples of the various qualities of fleece, and how they become woven into different fabrics is very interesting.

Even if you a not a knit-wit it is worth a poke around. All manner of quality products based on wool and some others besides. They have a display to help the uninitiated understand the harvesting and grading of wool so that you will know why your expensive Italian suit costs so much.

Worth a visit just to get the history of the Ross Bridge. I was able to show my husband the difference between AAA and BB wool - even though explained at the wool centre in microns. Would have been good to see this also explained. Beautiful wool products on sale
