Whitinsville, MA was founded in 1835 by Paul Whitin and his sons. Their mill became one of the largest textile machinery companies in the world and operated for over 135 years. Both our spinning frame and plying machine proudly display the Whitin stamp; and they wind our spun fibers around wooden bobbins in a twisting pattern that is reminiscent of the spiraling ribs of this beanie. Knitting this hat with our yarns made from New England sourced fibers can connect you directly to this rich history of fiber manufacturing that is still a part of life here in Vermont.

Shown knit with 1 skein of 4-Ply Nor’Eastern above and 1 skein of Grasshopper Weekend Wool below
