A friend and I went to the Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill in Mt. Horeb, WI this week. I had been wanting to tour the mill ever since the owner, Anne, gave a talk at one of the Madison Knitting Guild meetings last fall. It’s a short drive from Madison in a beautiful, hilly area.
They were doing their once-a-year cleaning of the equipment when we visited but we still got a good glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes. Each batch of yarn that the mill produces is custom. They have a storefront too and we purchased some super soft and affordable wool from the mill. I can’t wait to knit with mine! Project photos to follow.
