Sitting along the banks of Higgins Stream in Harmony, ME is a vintage mill building that holds the last remaining working spinning mule in the United States. Started in 1821, Bartlettyarns was founded by Ozias Bartlett and continues with the Rice family.

At Bartlettyarns, our “full measure” skeins consist of a full 4 ounces per skein, four skeins per pound. Bartlettyarns are spun on the woolen system for a traditional homespun appearance, softer twist and more bloom than worsted yarns.
