NUNDLE Woollen Mill owners Kylie and Nick Bradford are some of the region’s latest tree-changers, taking their fashion labels from the streets of Sydney and setting up shop in the village of Nundle.
The former Sydney residents had a business at Taren Point where they had labels Sheer Bliss, ladies’ knitwear, and Infinite Wool shirts, which they started in 2001.
The couple has owned the Woollen Mill since 2007 and commuted between the two businesses until now.
“We’re now fully-fledged Nundle residents,” Mr Bradford said.
“It’s about bringing both businesses under one roof and we have a four-year-old son, Zac, so this is a great opportunity for him to have a country upbringing because both Kylie and I are country people.”
Mr Bradford said they decided to move up to Nundle 12 months ago, but then had to plan the move.
“We bought seven acres and will build next year then we’ll be settled. Zac is loving the open space and going to the pool every afternoon. We’ve just bought a tractor and Zac thinks that’s very cool.”
The couple said they were also enjoying the more relaxed lifestyle of Nundle over Sydney, including being able to easily find parking spaces in the village and walk to the shops.
