Woolen yarn has been spun in the water powered, brick mill town of Harrisville since 1794. This small village is nestled in the Monadnock Highlands of southwestern New Hampshire and is the only industrial community of the early 19th century that still survives in America in its original form. Harrisville Designs has been spinning 100% Virgin Wool yarn in Harrisville, New Hampshire for 40 years. As one of a handful of woolen mills left in the United States, Harrisville's textile tradition is rich and dates back to 1794 when the first of several mills were built across the Nubanusit River to harness the water-power necessary for carding fleeces brought down to the village from local hilltop farms.
