Its been ages since I added a blanket label to my collection
Not much information to be had. Years ago I went to to Armley Mills, now Leeds Industrial Museum, perhaps my blanket was made there. I can't seem to find a link on their website where I can ask for information.
No shortage of disused mills in the Leeds area though, but somehow I dont think they would be able to help me.
I might try to contact this old mill. still in operation.
I find it really frustrating when you can't find information on something - we're so spoilt with the internet now that we expect to be able to get an answer to every question we have.ReplyDelete
Seems there are a few woolen mills still operating in the Leeds area, I.m assuming this blanket does come from Leeds.Delete
How infuriating! Is this website any use? http://www.woolsack.org/ It is fairly new but fast becoming a go-to for wool related stuff.ReplyDelete
Thank you SO much, thats a very interesting site.Delete
