Berroco Yarns has a long and storied history. Their origin story begins in the late-1800s with one of the first fabric mills in the United States. In the mid-1900s, the Stanley Berroco company began selling weaving yarns in the mid-twentieth century before expanding into handknitting and crocheting yarns. Today, they’re one of the largest importers and wholesalers of yarn in the United States, and they continue to provide quality yarns to the crafting community. In addition to the wide-range of Berroco yarns, they also distribute LANG YARNS, Amano Yarns, Ístex Lopi, and James C. Brett yarns. Now operating on the site of the old Lonsdale Cotton Mill in North Smithfield, RI, Berroco continues the family tradition, providing quality textiles by continually adapting to the changing needs of the times.
Schacht Spindle Company, Inc. was founded during the back-to-earth movement of the late 1960’s and its accompanying craft resurgence. The business began quite by chance when the brothers were commissioned to make some drop spindles for Louise Green of Greentree Ranch in Loveland, Colorado. They then started making simple looms which they sold to shops around the country, as well as through the local free school. As interest in weaving grew, the company developed more products, including their popular Baby Wolf Loom, Matchless Spinning Wheel, and Cricket Rigid heddle loom.
Over the years Schacht Spindle’s guiding principle has been to create products that work well for the intended purpose, that are thoughtfully and aesthetically designed. Today Schacht Spindle is a sophisticated woodworking manufacturer, producing over 150 products for weaving and spinning in a 35,000 square foot factory in Boulder, Colorado. www.schachtspindle.com
