2023 brought more new visitors to the Mill than ever before. We’ve shared with them the history of our co-op from its founding in 1981 to our newest yarns that are still on the bobbins.
Their enthusiasm for our process and our products reminds us afresh everyday that making beautiful yarn is important work. In your hands, the gorgeous skeins of yarn that we spin from natural fibers become cherished keepsakes. They warm and comfort your family, friends and members of your community.
We want to offer a hearty thank you to all of the folks who visited the Mill over the past couple of weeks for the I-91 Shop Hop. We really enjoyed meeting new friends, offering them tours of the Production Floor and sharing this new pattern. We’d like to introduce you to our latest FREE pattern: the Stash Buster Crochet Hat designed by Maureen.
Green Mountain Spinnery will be attending three big fiber festivals this fall, including the Sheep & Wool festivals in the Wisconsin, New York, and Vermont. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, we hope you’ll drop by and see is and our latest yarn offerings. We’d love to meet you!
There was a distinct bite to the air this morning as we arrived at the Mill and that tells us that Fall is coming and our festival season is near! We imagine that very soon local nurseries will be filling up with mums and folks will start craving pumpkin spice in their coffee. We are hard at work spinning up a storm of fresh skeins so that we and some of your favorite fiber producers and indie dyers will have fresh inventory to share with you in the coming months.

Meet us in the barn via Zoom on Saturday, May 15 from 5 – 6 pm EST for Wing and a Prayer Farm’s Monthly Barn Chat!
We are proud to be sponsors of this month’s event. This Saturday, Deborah Robson, author of “The Fleece + Fiber Sourcebook” and Farmer Tammy will host a “Wool Free For-All”.
Typically, this weekend we would be joining many of the New England fiber producers at the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival in Deerfield, New Hampshire. This year’s festivities have been cancelled, so we’ll wait patiently until 2022 to gather.
In the meantime, we wanted to share a very small batch of Limited Edition yarn that we would have showcased at the fair, as well as an opportunity to do a bit of armchair travelling to learn more about the original source of this fiber!
We hope that you’ve enjoyed looking through the collection of accessory patterns that we designed over the past decade to feature our Simply Fine yarn, in our previous blog post. We’d like to continue the story, and share a bit more with you.
