Johnstons Cashmere Visitor Centre



For those in the know, the name Johnstons is synonymous with the finest quality luxury cashmere in the world.

Join us at our flagship mill in Elgin, the only mill in Scotland to transform cashmere from fibre to finished article, and we’ll tell you our story.

It begins in the farthermost reaches of Inner Mongolia and ends in the greatest fashion centres of the world.

Feel for yourself the raw material, combed by hand from the downy undercoat of the rare Cashmere goat.

Watch as it is dyed, teased, carded, spun and hand finished by the latest generation of Elgin craftsmen.

Follow its difficult journey and stop along the way for afternoon tea and a freshly made scone or venture into our shop and take a piece of Johnstons home with you.

If you are travelling in a large group, we recommend you telephone and book in advance.

Mill Tours are only available during mill working hours, and at certain times of the year the mill closes for necessary holiday & maintenance periods.

To avoid disappointment please call us in advance on +44 (0)1343 554088 (Elgin)

If you have any questions regarding the mill tour you can email us at or call us on +44 (0)1343 554088.
