Saco River Dyehouse is the owner of the Paternayan line of yarns, a product designed and branded by two Armenian brothers who began selling the yarn in New York in 1916. After testing and sampling, Paternayan Persian is now available and being sold throughout what is an international market.

In 1936, the Paternayan brothers, Harry and Karnig began dyeing and marketing this lustrous, sturdy woolen yarn that created a worldwide following in the needle arts, crafts and rug markets. Paternayan yarn was offered in 430 colors and over the next 100 years its popularity grew, it’s currently offered in 418 colors.
