John Hanly & Co Woollen Mill – where tradition and quality have been spun continuously for five generations.

Since 1893, the Hanly family has specialized in weaving the softest, most durable and comfortable woollen fabrics for use in scarves, throws and other products. In order to celebrate the significant & deep history we enjoy, we are always eager to welcome guests who want to visit.

Our fabrics are designed and woven on-site at the mill here in Ballyartella by a team of skilled craftspeople who are committed to producing luxurious woven products in a sustainable manner.

Located adjacent to the mill on an idyllic site by the Nenagh River, the factory shop offers an enhanced retail experience where you will find great value in luxurious throws & blankets, scarves & fashionable Irish caps & hats.
