About Battenkill Fibers
Battenkill Fibers in Greenwich, NY
New York maker of Wool Fingerless Gloves and Woven Wool Pillow. Founder: Mary Jeanne Packer.
Recognizing the need for value-added, custom carding and spinning services for fiber farms and others in the region, Battenkill Fibers was established to meet this demand and to also manufacture yarn and fiber products for wholesale and retail markets. Battenkill Fibers produces artisan quality natural-colored and kettle-dyed yarn using traditional semi-worsted milling machinery. They embrace and respect nature, history, and culture of their place on the land in the Upper Hudson Valley; and strive to sustain this rural heritage for future generations.
Battenkill Fibers are committed to their customers and community – they pay a fair price for fibers sourced from family-owned farms, insure equitable evaluation of fiber quality, offer diverse employment opportunities, and make environmentally responsible choices in all aspects of procurement, processing, and distribution.
