S1E25 : Building a US Supply Chain for Wool Yarn with April Zeilinger

This week we will be talking with April Zellinger of Zelllinger Wool Company from Frankenmuth, Michigan. The Zellinger Wool Company, founded in 1910, has been taking natural fibers that are renewable, biodegradable and making it into a product that will be used in homes across America. They are both a processing fiber mill, taking in a large variety of fiber types to produce roving, batting, combed top, and yarn. They also have the capabilities to produce final products such as socks, gloves, and hats. 

We hope you enjoy our conversation as we talk about the history of the mill, their spinning process, going to shows as a mill, and creating with wool from the United States.
