Cashmere... the finest and softest fibre in existence


Cashmere.  The finest and softest fibre in existence.  The Mill in Elgin is the only mill in Scotland to transform cashmere from fibre to finished article.  Each season our design team create exciting collections of fabrics, knitwear and accessories for ladies and men as well as for the home. You can find a fantastic range of Johnstons cashmere, lambswool and tweed direct from our flagship mill and your visit to Johnstons will not be complete without afternoon tea and a freshly made scone from our bright and airy coffee shop. Complimenting our existing Johnstons Coffee shop in Elgin, we opened a seasonal Courtyard Café in 2010.  Situated outdoors in the beautiful Courtyard patio, the café offers a wide range of seafood, meats, and summer salads – all made using fresh, local produce. 

You can take a free guided tour of the entire manufacturing process with one of our Johnstons experienced tour guides.  Watch for yourself as the cashmere is dyed, teased, carded, spun and hand finished by the latest generation of Elgin craftsmen.

Heritage Centre & Mill Shop: Monday - Saturday: 9am-5:30pm, Sunday: 11am-5pm
Coffee Shop - Monday to Saturday: 10am-5pm, Sunday 11am-4:30pm
