This week we speak with David Jagger and Susan Mills from JaggerSpun yarns in Springvale, Maine.
JaggerSpun yarns have been a staple in many weavers yarn stashes for many years. Their bright saturated colors in worsted yarn makes for beautiful suiting, wearables, and home goods that will last for years. I find the drape of the cloth produced to be light, weighted just enough, and comes together for a nice hand.
Though they have restructured in the last year, they are still going strong selling to fiber artists, knitters, crocheters, and weavers. My favorite is their heathered 2/18’s. It just adds such a level of depth in the finished cloth.
We hope you enjoy our conversation as we talk about why and how the business was restructured, the differences in woolen and worsted yarns, and learn about the changes in the global textile economy.
