Green Mountain Spinnery has become a destination for knitters. What they find is the unexpected. Our yarn mill is cobbled together from a group of antique machines and new technology wedged into a building converted from an old gas station at the off ramp of I-91 in Putney Vermont. We make thousands of pounds of yarn each year for individual farmers, yarn shops and knitters. There is nothing like seeing the raw fleeces washed to fluffy softness, blended to magical colors, and spun to yarns you want to touch and wear. We use only North American-grown fibers for our yarns, focusing on fiber produced in New England. We care about supporting local farmers, so we buy as much high quality, locally grown fiber as possible. Since our fiber needs are greater than the local supply we also purchase wool and mohair from as far away as New Mexico, Texas and Montana. These videos will give you a sense of what we are working on, how we make our yarn, and what's new at the Spinnery.
