The Green Mountain Spinnery located in Putney, Vermont is one of the very ‘green-est’ yarn companies around.
Since its founding thirty years ago, the Spinnery has been designing and producing richly coloured, must-touch classic and contemporary yarns. To this day, their goals remain unchanged: to create yarns of the highest quality, to help sustain regional sheep farming, and to develop environmentally sound ways to process natural fibres.
All the fibres used by the Spinnery – alpaca, mohair, wool and organic cotton – are grown in the United States, purchased whenever possible from individual growers. Unlike most commercial mills, The Green Mountain Spinnery uses no chemicals to bleach, moth-proof or shrink-proof yarns.
