About who makes it: We love everything about local-to-us Green Mountain Spinnery. They spin some pretty famous yarns; if you've ever crochet or knit with Julie Asselin, Tidal Yarns, Catskill Merino, or Wing and a Prayer Farm, you've experienced the crafts(wo)manship of the Spinnery.
Based in Vermont, this worker-owned cooperative focuses on supporting regional farming and producing natural fibers responsibly; they are one of the only mills in the US that is certified to produce organic fiber. Heather says she can spot a Green Mountain-spun skein at any sheep and wool festival for its consistent spin and perfect twist.
We're so happy to introduce you to one of our favorite companies in the New England fibershed. Our local farms could not do what they do without the partnership of the Spinnery, and we know you'll love making with this truly excellent yarn.
