Bartlettyarns dates back to 1821. Ozias Bartlett started a carding mill along the banks of Higgins Stream. Operating until the 1920’s, the original building burned and a new building was constructed with all modern conveniences, such as electricity! The spinning mule operates daily and is the last remaining within the United States. A Johnson and Wales, circa 1940’s spins 240 bobbins at a time, replicating the motion of hand spinning. The fine yarns produced are known worldwide for the softer twist and airy loftiness.
