Another winner from Thea!

We are not alone in our admiration for Thea Colman’s newest pattern!  A quick search of this week’s most popular patterns in Raverly will bring her Fernet Branca to the top of your screen.  And a quick glance at her photos will show you why.  Everything about this sweater says, “knit me!” This cozy oversize […]


A mitten for every month!

Our friend Eli of Skeindeer Knits has organized a club that you may want to take part in!   Her pattern subscription club will grant you exclusive access to four as of yet unpublished Norwegian colorwork mitten patterns. They will each be released at the beginning of every month until the end of 2018, and each […]


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 […]


Holiday Knits – warm woolen mittens

We have a new pattern to share with you this week that could be a perfect choice for your holiday gift knitting.  Cap Sease has created the Double Stuff Mitten for those of you looking for a little something that will be as snug and comforting as a cup of cocoa and a plate full of […]


Thank you

As we gather around holiday tables this weekend with friends and family, we can’t help but count our blessings.  We are so grateful for your enthusiasm for our deliciously wooly yarns.  Your support of our mission allows us to continue to partner with small farms raising heritage breeds, and that keeps the American fiber shed thriving. As a small […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Dreamed, spun, designed and knit

It all started with Julie Asselin.  She dreamed up a new yarn last summer; and when her Nurtured moved through our production line, we all knew that it was something special. This yarn is created by blending and spinning wool that Julie has dyed before sending it to us.  You can see in the photo […]


As requested

Catalina Wrap

We love hearing from our friends and customers what they’d like us to create next.  We’ve received some great ideas from those of you who stop by our booths at festivals or our little shop here in Putney. One request that we received several times this year has now come to fruition; we’ve added a […]
