Bartlettyarns is famous for its Maine wool yarn, roving and other fine products. We are truly a Made in Maine product and Made in the USA story!

In addition to our retail products, Bartlettyarns also provides custom processing services to our fiber producing friends. We offer two types of services, “Traditional Custom Processing” and “Guaranteed Custom Processing”.

We encourage you to spend a few moments to learn more about Bartlettyarns services.

We are proud to offer value and quality in every product we make. From our “full measure” four ounce wool yarn skeins, to our traditional home-spun appearance with a softer twist and more bloom/loft, we source our fiber from local producers, mostly along the east coast. Bartlettyarns prides itself in its sustainable production methods. Our sustainability practices are further described on our “about us” page.

Bartlettyarns produces several yarn and roving color ways which include Fisherman; our specialty since the 1800’s; Rangeley; which are inspired by the lakes, forests and mountains of Maine; Shetlands; with marvelous combinations of natural and dyed wool colors to Glen Tweeds with warm tones and textures of authentic Scottish checks and tweeds; to our Solids which are spun first and then skein dyed using only select domestic wools.
