Ribs with a twist

The delicious scent of BBQ often drifts down the hill from Curtis’ BBQ on long summer afternoons setting our minds to picnicking.  But this week, we have ribs of another kind to tell you about. We’ve just published Kate’s newest design: the Suspension Shawl.  She got her inspiration for this pattern from the Leonard P. Zakim […]


As light as a feather

This week has been a steamy one here in the Northeast with lots of (welcome) rain.  It has us wishing for a smaller project on our needles and Amy Christoffers’ newest pattern delivers!  This week, she introduced her Hen of the Wood shawl.  It may just be the perfect travel project. “The Hen of the […]


Signs of Spring

In celebration of the first hints of Spring that have appeared in Vermont this week, we have a new pattern to share with you that has made our winter months more colorful.  We’ve been hard at work over the past several weeks knitting up samples that have made us feel like artists. Our Expressionist Shawl pairs […]


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 […]


Rhinebeck Sweaters

We are so looking forward to the New York Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY this weekend.  Every year, all of us that return for the fun wear our hand knits looking forward to the accolades and recognition that are such a rewarding part of the day. You will be hard-pressed to find another group as […]


New for fall (part one)

Autumn has so many iconic signs: shorter days, crisp temperatures, turning and falling leaves and the start of school. Each of us marks the change of the seasons with a different indicator, but all of us here at the Spinnery are feeling ready for the start of a new season! As our youngsters head back to school […]

We hope that you’ll take this project with you everywhere this summer.  Those growing […]


Vintage comfort

NATURAL DARK Weekend Wool

As the first skeins of Lana moved through production, Maureen began envisioning a gradient version of this 100% wool fingering weight yarn. With faded vintage cotton fabrics in mind, Maureen worked with Laurie on a blended yarn that combined increasing amounts of bale dyed wool to undyed fiber to create a very gradual gradient that extends over […]


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 […]


Spreading sunshine

Sometimes we are drawn to work with a particular yarn because the color speaks to us, at times its the texture or quality of the fiber; and occasionally our selection can be influenced by larger, global considerations.  When our choice makes a positive impact on folks we’ve never met, every one of us wins. For over […]
