We’re on board

Back in the fall of 2016, Maureen’s Green Mountain Flyer Tunic was published in a terrific collection of sweater dresses entitled All Aboard!   A total of 6 talented designers collaborated on this electronic anthology and their patterns inspired a more than a few of us to reconsider knitted dresses and tunics. These patterns bring a […]


A pattern for your entire list

With the holiday season quickly approaching, many of us here at the Spinnery have started planning and crafting our handknit gifts.  When the knitworthy list is long, smaller projects are a perfect choice; and those that can easily travel move to the top of our list.  We wanted to share our current favorite with you […]


One last Snow Day

If you follow our Instagram feed, than you may have seen that Maureen recently cast off a Snow Day Shawl designed by Knitting Expat Designs. This beauty is created with three skeins of Spinnery Cotton Comfort (seen above in Juniper, Weathered Green and Unbleached White). This shawl stole its fair share of attention at our booth […]


Just around the corner

Temperatures are warming up here in Vermont and that has us eagerly anticipating Spring, which is likely to be delayed by a few more messy late winter storms.  In an effort to change our perspective on any upcoming precipitation, we’ve got a new pattern to play with: Wintery Mix. We hope that this project will have us looking […]


Winter woolens

As temperatures start to drop and days become shorter, we find ourselves drawn to working on projects that will take a bit more time.  The prospect of sitting quietly with a lap full of knitting is comforting; and so larger projects have a greater appeal.  With this in mind, earlier this fall Maureen teamed up […]


Terrific savings, rain or shine

SUNNY Meadow

The forecast for this weekend is looking as though it might get a little gloomy, so we have brightened up the production floor by filling it with beautiful yarn for sale.  Our Tent Sale has moved indoors! Our annual Tent Sale started yesterday morning and continues here at the Spinnery all weekend (Sat, Sun & Mon […]


Announcing several new patterns

JADE Sock Art Forest

To accompany the new yarns that we’ve been working on this Spring, we have several new patterns releasing this week that we are very eager to share with you. All of these new patterns will be making their debut at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival in Friendship, MD this weekend.  We hope that you’ll have […]


And that’s not all…

Last week we shared with you Amy Christoffer’s Coolidge Cardigan pattern, a lovely moss stitch and lace creation that Maureen has already cast on for.  She is making a version in Pumpkin Weekend Wool that just might be ready to make its debut at Rhinebeck. This week we wanted to draw your attention to the […]


Shop Hop project ideas

With the I-91 Shop Hop gearing up to start next week, we got to thinking about how to help get your creative juices flowing. We understand that with a dozen shops to visit, the temptation to pick up a skein or two at each will run strong.  We also recognize that yarn shopping without projects […]


Hitting the road

Summertime brings with it a call from the open road.  For those of us free from the demands of a working farm, a desire to travel gets us planning trips to visit friends, family, and new locales.  And with the I-91 Shop Hop just two weeks away, all of us knitters at the Spinnery are […]


$5 skeins of Green Mountain Spinnery yarns?!

Yep! Our tent sale is featuring some terrific bargains on orphan skeins. These are small quantities of skeins leftover from older dye lots. We have found a few skeins of our favorites: Mountain Mohair, Cotton Comfort, Sylvan Spirit, Alpaca Elegance, and Maine and New Mexico Organics. Every skein is just $5. Great yarn for a […]


Maureen’s new shawl

While traveling last week, Maureen had plenty of time to work on a new shawl.  She cast off her last few stitches as we drove back to Vermont from Maryland and will be able to model it this weekend at the New Hampshire Sheep & Wool Festival. This is the Lallybroch Shawl designed by our […]
