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!
In vibrant and subtle hues with a frosty sheen, versatile Mountain Mohair from Green Mountain Spinnery is pure beauty! This single-ply premium yarn, spun with the softest yearling mohair and fine wool, is interchangeable with other worsted weight wool yarns.
