Germantown is a classic American made yarn. In fact, it is a revival of the very first commercial American yarn! This 100% North American non-superwash wool is spun and dyed in North Carolina. Germantown is known for its softness, bounce, stitch definition, and wide range of vibrant colors perfect for both traditional and modern projects.

The wool for Germantown is grown in the Western US, namely Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. It is called Territory wool, named for the former US Territories where it is now grown. A graded blend of Rambouillet, Targhee, Columbia, and Polypay, it has a soft, crisp hand with a lot of bounce! It is a workhorse that is worthy of heirloom knitting or everyday basics.

An icon of American craft, Germantown was developed in Philadelphia in the early 1800s. Synonymous with a good quality worsted yarn, it is 100% grown and manufactured in the USA.
