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 […]

The Athens Key Hat

There will be sheep aplenty as […]

Back to school!

School has started in Putney Vermont this week.  Backpacks were filled, pencils were sharpened, and apples polished.  And we at the Spinnery have been thinking about projects for little ones.  Perhaps a new sweater finished just in time for school photos?  We have a wall of restocked Mountain Mohair for you to choose from.   […]

This fingering weight single ply yarn is a wonderfully soft blend […]
