Does anyone know why Mission Falls is closing their yarn factory?

Mission Falls have advised us that their mill has indicated that they will no longer be able to produce their 1824 Wool. This news, combined with similar problems that forced them to discontinue their 1824 Cotton earlier in the year, have made them to decide to close their business.


That's the word from Camilla Valley Farm, one of the places that is selling off the last of their Mission Falls yarn.

This makes me very sad. In a world where knitting is becoming so popular, this should not happen!

My LYS said that Mission Falls told them in the summer that they were discontinuing- their spinner was closing and they couldn't find another one.  This apparently happened right around the same time when they launched their new mitten book too.  Very, very sucky. I like their wool and I really liked their cotton too.

oh, im sorry - i thought that was where i saw the story. of course now i cant find where i found it...


anyway, what i read on one vendor's site is that they had major problems with their mill & weren't able to reach an agreement (over whatever they were fighting about - it didnt say) & so they decided they had to discontinue the line

a real shame - everybody raved about their lines...

some news on this... my lys says the following...

"The manufacturers of the Lily Chin collection have just announced that they are buying the rights to the Mission Falls yarns, and will be supplying the complete range of 1824 Wool and 1824 Cotton starting in late January. Yes, both the wool and cotton will be back."

I'm glad to hear this.  Mission Falls offered some of the most beautiful, subtle colors.
