I'm pleased to announce that The Quilted Purl now carries six lines of yarn from Green Mountain Spinnery, the only shop in Colorado to do so, I believe. The Green Mountain Spinnery story is as interesting as their yarn is beautiful. Click on the link to read about their cooperative and be sure to take the virtual tour of their operation. As a former history teacher, I'm especially impressed with the fact that they're still using a machine built in 1896! Fantastic!
I'm very excited to be able to support American producers of wool and manufacturers of yarn and to offer it to my customers. Check out the new yarns here or better yet, come by to see and touch them in person!
