Maine Woolens is a locally owned textile mill producing renewable fiber blankets, throws, and baby blankets, in wool, cotton, specialty fibers, and blends. Fibers woven by Maine Woolens include natural premium grade sheep's wool (from American growers); natural cotton; bamboo (a natural anti-bacterial fiber); Alpaca; and many blends of fibers.
Blankets and throws woven from these fibers and blends are soft and luxurious to the touch, and cozy warm or comfortably light, depending on the fiber, blend, and weight selected. The blankets are easily cared for because they are either 100% washable or "Dry Clean Only" just once a year.
Maine Woolens employs local weavers, sewers, and dyers whose combined textile experience exceeds 300 years! Located in Brunswick Maine, at 15 Paul Street, the 9,000 square foot textile mill was expanded in late 2012, and now has 15,000+ square feet. The present count of 6 power looms is growing to 10 or more looms. Maine Woolens also has a complete in-house finishing facility.
