We don't take the Mill for granted.
While there's no doubt it's familiar to us, when we pull up for a moment, the energy still hits - it all happens right there. Cones of yarn come in, knit socks, packaged up, leave.
The Cabot Hosiery Mill has been at it for over 40 years now and Darn Tough Vermont has been running on the machines since 2004. First sock was a running sock, FYI.
Cones of yarn, not spools. They are nested on creels. Merino Wool, Lycra and Nylon are the most common ingredients.
The toe-seam knit is what helps with the True Seamless Toe all our socks have. It's one of those features you never think about, and that's kind of the point.
Two things. This guy is checking socks for any issues that might have to be remedied. Second, those yarn cones are not at head level for most people. He's wicked tall.
That's a Micro Crew Hiker, black, otherwise known as the 1466. It's the undisputed champion when it comes to how many have been knit, and continue to be knit.
Speaking of champions, when someone like Spartan World Champion, and friend, Nicole Mericle stops in, it's always a good reminder of how the Mill makes you smile.
Standardized testing is not just for school systems.
Marc and Ric Cabot. They own the place.
