In 1819, the John Foster story of producing the world’s finest worsted cloths from luxurious merino wool, mohair, alpaca, cashmere and silk began. At the age of 21 he started to revolutionise the textile industry.

In 1835, Mr. Foster erected a mill in Black Dyke, Queensbury, on the site of a family farmstead. This mill became known as ‘Black Dyke Mills’, and was the foundation upon which John Foster’s immense business was built.
