About Hampton Fiber Mill & Spinnery
Hampton Fiber Mill & Spinnery is a custom textile fiber-processing mill located in Richmond, Vermont. Established in 2010, the mill is a cottage industry serving the needs of New England’s diverse community of fiber producers.
Hampton Fiber Mill & Spinnery is the realization of a dream of Michael Hampton, a fiber enthusiast since childhood. He has been knitting since elementary school in Montana and has been hand-spinning yarn for many years in Vermont. After 20 years as an engineering consultant to the petrochemical industry, it was time to turn a hobby into a vocation. Eighteen months of research, planning, and waiting paid off in late 2010 when the equipment arrived at the mill. Word traveled quickly and the mill has been busy since startup.
Hampton Fiber Mill & Spinnery strives to assist New England fiber producers realize their own dreams of regionally-produced, high-quality, value-added products manufactured from their own fiber.
