Bartlett Yarns in Maine
 
Hello all -

Has anyone ever worked with or is familiar with the wool yarn from Bartlett Yarns in Maine?

Would love to hear your thoughts if you have.

Thanks!

Wow! I was sure SOMEBODY would have worked with this yarn!

Maybe I'll be the pioneer . . .

Hmmm....I live in Maine, and I've never heard of them. I'll have to check into them.

Thanks! Let me know if you hear of anything. They are in a place called Harmony, ME.

Bartlett has a long-time reputation as a spinning mill where people who raise sheep go to have their fleeces spun into yarn. I once bought a few skeins of their worsted from a farm-based shop on Cape Cod; it had been made from the farm's own sheep. I don't quite know what to say about it: it was good wool, not overly processed, well spun, and it made a very nice winter scarf.

Actually, I wasn't aware that Bartlett sold its own yarn.
After looking at their Web site and their prices, I'm tempted, especially by the Shetland.

I just checked their website and their prices look pretty good, but I have no idea as the quality. I may have to order a skein myself just to see what it's like. Any suggestions for a project for 4 oz. of sport weight wool? :)

Hmmm...Harmony. I know I've heard of it, but I'll have to go look at a map to figure out where it is....OK...it is above Waterville...I would have to say it is about 2 1/2 hours from Portland.

I'll have to check out their website.

Bartlett yarns
 
I bought a sweater's worth of skeins on the Web--like the color and texture, but haven't knitted with it yet.
