History of the Mill:
In 1874 Scotsman Peter Bulman began producing tweed, blankets, felted cloth, shirting, and flannel in his mill on the banks of Distillery Creek in Launceston, Tasmania. The press dubbed it the Waverley Woollen Factory, the name Bulman would later adapt when he named his factory the Waverley Woollen Mills. Move forward 140+ years, and they have updated the name and brand to Waverley Mills.
Since 1874, Waverley Mills has been producing Australia’s highest quality wool textiles and has made textile manufacturing a dominant industry in Tasmania. Waverley Mills once boasted 80% of the Australian blanket market.
