Welcome to Green Mountain Spinnery Natural Fiber Yarn - A Worker-Owned Cooperative in Putney, Vermont.
Since our founding thirty years ago we have been designing and producing richly colored, must-touch classic and contemporary yarns. To this day, our 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 we use — alpaca, mohair, wool, and organic cotton — are grown in the United States. We make every effort to purchase directly from individual growers. Our 100% wool yarns are spun entirely from New England fleece. Unlike most commercial mills, The Green Mountain Spinnery uses no chemicals to bleach, moth-proof or shrink-proof yarns.

The result? See and feel our yarns for yourself.

Spinnery News

A new sweater for you to consider

Occasionally, a pattern that turns up on Raverly, Facebook or Pinterest that gets our attention.  This week, Isabell Kraemer’s Audrey Cardigan has been the talk of the Spinnery as all of us realized that we’d added it to our must-knit lists.

“Worked in one piece from the top down, the sweater features reversible front borders and elegant shaping. Faux raglan, back and doubled side seams add visual interest. The optional longer sleeves include thumb openings which make the cuffs function like built-in fingerless mitts – perfect for those cooler days!”

We all agreed that we loved the boxy shape, the faux seams, and best of all: the long sleeves that could double as wrist warmers.

The asymmetric front can be belted closed, clasped with a shawl pin, buttoned, or left open.  The myriad ways in which this sweater can be worn made it attractive to all of us although we typically have widely disparate ideas about what we want in a sweater.

Another commonality was that all of us selected Spinnery Weekend Wool as our yarn of choice.  Our 11 colors can provide many compelling combinations.  Here are the ones that we selected:

Maureen selected Lichen  for her main color and Pine Warbler for her accent color.

You’ll notice that Pine Warbler was a very popular choice for that bright pop of color at the bottom of the body and sleeves.  Its vibrant hue works nicely with the differing main colors and the combinations couldn’t be more individual, from subtle to vibrant.

Kate and Larisa didn’t stray far from the neutral grey background pictured above, but each has her own idea of what she’d prefer for those deep cuffs.

Larisa selected Natural Grey as her main color and Blue Jay for her contrast color.

Kate selected Natural Grey for her main color and Mewesic Brick House (held double) for her contrast color.
