Green Mountain Spinnery Natural Fiber Yarn is a Worker-Owned Cooperative in Putney, Vermont. Since their founding hey have been designing and producing richly colored, 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 fibers. All the fibers they use — alpaca, mohair, wool, TENCEL®, and organic cotton — are grown in the United States. They make every effort to purchase directly from individual growers. Unlike most commercial mills, The Green Mountain Spinnery uses no chemicals to bleach, moth-proof or shrink-proof yarns.
Yarns Available: Cotton Comfort
Green Mountain Spinnery's blend of fibers combines the pure softness of organic cotton with the elasticity and delicacy of fine wool. The knitted fabric is elegant but casual, light but warm, wearable year-round.
