FiberME 2015 Tour Highlight: Jagger Brothers

jagger-newsletter-1

FiberME 2015 ventures south from Bath on Thursday, August 6th to Springdale, Maine where we’ll visit Jagger Brothers, manufacturers of high quality worsted spun yarns since the late 1800’s. They manufacture custom spun yarns, as well as produce their own yarn lines under the Jagger Spun division of the company. The Springdale mill has been the home of Jagger Brothers since 1956.

Previous visits to Jagger Brothers have elicited fantastic responses from FiberME participants. They are amazed at the many steps involved in producing these high quality yarns: blending, drawing, roving, spinning, winding and twisting. On this year’s tour we’ll travel through the mill following these steps and seeing the combination of old and new, state of the art equipment used in these processes and the wonderful Jagger Bothers employees who produce the yarn.

We love Jagger Brothers, but then, we’re biased… They spin our own Norumbega Yarn!
