Located near the end of the main street in Ross, this place lets visitors buy locally made wool products. There is also a small exhibit on the history of wool. Educational, with nice wool products which might be pricey for some.

This Wool Centre is an eyeopener into the History around Ross as well as cultivating interest in wool and the growth of this industry. This particular display is very well presented indeed.
