Onkaparinga TV Rug, 1960s (Pauline Cockrill)

Beers, Bears and Blankets

Hear some of the hidden stories of the Lobethal Woollen Mill, manufacturer of the famous Onkaparinga blankets. Join Pauline Cockrill, Community History Officer from the History Trust of South Australia, as she shares stories discovered during her research into the Mill’s social history. If you have your own Mill stories, we would love to hear them on the night, and if you have a vintage Onkaparinga blanket, feel free to bring it along to keep cosy during the event. Bookings essential.
