The Green Mountain Spinnery
The Green Mountain Spinnery was established in 1981 to spin local fleece into the finest possible yarn for knitters and weavers. Their blends of wool and precious fiber ~ silk, llama, mohair ~ produce sturdy 100% New England wool yarns in a rainbow of dyed and natural colors. Their founding principles are to conduct business in a democratic and environmentally responsible manner. All long-term workers at the Spinnery participate in setting purposes and policies, and approximately a quarter of the work force owns the business. Waste wool is recycled into useful products like baseballs at a nearby mill and dregs are used for garden mulch.
