Started in 1857, Briggs & Little purports to be the oldest wool mill in Canada. It has burned down 4 times over the years (thankfully not since 1994) and the owners continue to rebuild and produce quality products.
All of their premium Canada grade wool knitting yarns are made from 100% domestic wool, and are milled, carded, dyed, and spun at their factory in York Mills, New Brunswick, Canada. It’s the same place it’s been for over 160 years (other than burning down).
