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!

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

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.
