My aunt knows alot of information about the mill. She lives in the Village- on Victoria St her name is Constance Reiley Davis. You could give her a ring. I will be visiting the area in May, 2007. i will tell her about your posting on the website. She does not have a computer. But do you know if you have a webtv type of unit for the internet. Webtv is in the USA---it conects to the TV and phone line. Thank you.

I purchased two cones of fine , white yarn at a local thrift store. There is a label inside the cone with the following information:

Wm. Hutchinson (Yarns) Ltd.
8 WC
SH 600
LOT 28166

Can anyone give me any information about this yarn?
