A few weeks ago a couple of Classic Elite Yarns’ employees took a road trip to visit the mill where one of our yarns, Mohawk Wool, is produced. Mohawk Wool is the newest (and extremely beloved) member of the MountianTop Collection.
When they got to the mill they were greeted by the owner. She took them on a tour and walked them though the process of making Mohawk Wool. While we all know there are many steps to producing a quality yarn - it was surprising to find out just how many different steps there were. Here are just a few of pictures they took that day.

Maybe his fleece is destined to become Mohawk Wool.
