Green Mountain Spinnery has become a destination for knitters. What they find is the unexpected. Green Mountain Spinnery’s yarn mill is cobbled together from a group of antique machines and new technology wedged into a building converted from an old gas station in Putney Vermont.

About Green Mountain Spinnery:
This is no small operation. They make thousands of pounds of yarn each year for individual farmers, yarn shops and knitters. The space is small, hot, and often loud. The work is hard but it is so rewarding. There is nothing like seeing the raw fleeces washed to fluffy softness, blended to magical colors, and spun to yarns you want to touch and wear.
Using only North American-grown fibers in their yarns, they are focused on fiber grown in New England. They care about supporting local farmers, so they buy as much high quality, locally grown fiber as possible. Since their fiber needs are greater than the local supply wool and mohair is also purchased from as far away as New Mexico and Montana.
Being committed to finding ways to use our natural resources wisely is reflected in their manufacturing processes. Holding the title as one of the few Certified Organic wool mills in the United States, their yarns are not processed with harsh chemicals and retain the natural qualities of the fibers they are made of. Overtime they have developed innovative ways to deal with their waste products including recycling.
