Here’s a different type of yarn event. Bartlett Yarns in Harmony, Maine is a “Made in the USA” yarn production mill and preserves the traditions of the working spinning mules. Founded in 1821, this mill continued as a family-owned operation until 1947. Mill tours are available during the open house event. See the vintage equipment, some of the oldest in the country, while learning about the history of processing fibers into yarn.
The 2016 annual open house will be held August 5th-6th with hourly tours. Be aware that there are many steps on the tour and arrange accordingly to your skill levels.
