Green Mountain Spinnery is a worker-owned cooperative in Putney, Vermont. Since its founding in 1981, its 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. So you can understand why we are honored to carry their yarn in our little shop!
Green Mountain Green combines the best kid mohair with the finest wool in natural colors to produce a range of subtle natural colors. Fibers for this yarn are GREENSPUN using vegetable-based soaps and oils in the processing, then washed gently to preserve the natural sheen and resilience.
