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 […]


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 […]


A new Knit Along as a Valentine for yourself

We are eager to cast on for another Knit Along. We thought that a smaller project with a larger gauge might make for a quick knit that will be done in time to help us stay warm through the tail end of winter. All of us agreed that Hilary Smith Callis’ Adama cowl pattern would […]


A new pattern from the pages of a fairytale

We have released a new pattern this week that you may find irresistible: Maisie designed by Cap Sease. This magical little red riding hood is sized for pint sized folks aged 2-4.  And we think it is darling.  The pattern calls for up to three skeins of any of our worsted weight yarns: Weekend Wool, […]

A week at the Spinnery

Last week we started working on the Natural Dark color of both our Simply Fine and our Green Mountain Green yarns.  As different as these yarns appear to be in structure, they are identical in fiber content, so they can be created congruently for much of the production process. Almost like making cupcakes and a […]


Let’s root for the home team!

Baseball season starts this week, and the Red Sox’s first home game will be against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday afternoon.  We imagine that you may be spending some time in front of the TV this weekend, or perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to be in the bleacher seats at Fenway Park.  Brrrr! We thought […]


Mohair & Joe David Ross

Joe David Ross has supplied GMS with mohair since the mid 1980s. We met him through local farmer Deb Pamplin, a mohair grower in Wethersfield, Vermont. Deb had introduced the Spinnery to the possibilities of mohair when she started bringing fleeces to the Spinnery for processing.     Soon after, as we developed Mountain Mohair […]


GREENSPUN for Good

In a previous post, we shared the steps involved in creating our yarns, from raw fleece to spun yarn.  Today we would like to share with you the extra steps we take with several of our yarn lines to lessen our environmental impact. The GREENSPUN process is an extension of the environmental concerns basic to […]
