IT IS tucked away down a country lane, boasts only five staff and relies on machinery dating back to the Victorian era. Yet the tiny woollen mill on the Hebridean island of Islay has carved out a handy sideline in work for the international film industry.

Now the mill is celebrating its biggest coup after being asked to supply costumes for legendary director Steven Spielberg's latest blockbuster. Tweed outfits worn by soldiers in the Oscar-winning filmmaker's forthcoming epic War Horse will be supplied by Islay Woollen Mill.

The full story can be read in The Scotsman!

Islay... the gateway to JURA!

Thanks for posting Bruce. this is good news for Islay and even better for the Woollen Mill! Big Grin

And you know what the Woollen Mill website says:

Should you visit Islay, stopping at the Islay Woollen Mill is as necessary as touring a distillery.
