Enrichment of local heritage, training and skills development are key goals of Uist Wool.

The Mill and Wool Centre has been set up in an educational context, delivering new awareness and textile skills training not only to staff, but also to the public and educational providers through community links.

Uist Wool will provide a central resource and dynamo of activity to support this outreach work. This will be one of its key strengths and pivotal to textile skills development across the wider community.
