Since their founding in 1981, the Green Mountain Spinnery's goals remain unchanged: to create yarns of the highest quality, to help sustain regional sheep farming, and to develop environmentally sound ways to process natural fibers.
From initial contact with the fiber grower through the final labeling and approval of each finished skein of yarn, theirr team attends with care to every step and detail in the yarn-making process. All the fibers they use – alpaca, mohair, wool and organic cotton – are grown in the United States. They make every effort to purchase directly from individual growers.
