Textile Mill

Mill History

Founded in 1853 in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, the Warren Mills was America's most prominent manufacturer of fine camel hair and cashmere woolen fabrics in the middle of the 20th century.

In 1988, a famed Italian luxury goods group assumed control of the mill and invested considerable resources to expand and upgrade its facilities, effectively creating America’s only premium quality wool textile operation.

In 2014, the new American Woolen Company purchased the historic Warren Mills, the only remaining U.S. mill capable of producing the highest qualities of both worsted and woolen cloth.

Process

Spinning

Spinning is the activity of twisting single strands of fibers together to form a spun yarn. Spun yarns vary by weight, twist and fiber content and are utilized to create woven and knit textiles.

Weaving is the interlacing together of two sets of yarns, vertical and horizontal, of various characteristics to form a woven fabric. Weaving is performed on a mechanical loom or a hand loom. Freshly woven fabric is considered greige and requires further finishing to impart desired aesthetic and/or functional properties.

Weaving

Dyeing & Finishing

Dyeing and Finishing are the activities to impart desired aesthetic and/or functional properties to textiles through specialized equipment. Unlike synthetic textile operations that use various solvents to impart these qualities, American Woolen’s main finishing agent is fresh spring water.
