Patrick King came from a family of Irish weavers and spinners. Ireland in the mid 1800’s was rife with extreme poverty and malnutrition, even the weaving trade was no exception.
In 1873 it was decided that they had to leave Ireland their home in search of something better than they had known all their lives and settled in Glasgow, Scotland.
Today Patrick King Woollen Company continues to be a recognizable name for quality wool products having offices in both Port Hope, Ontario and Edinburgh, Scotland.
