Organic

Undyed natural yarns.

Since January, 2013 the Saco River Dyehouse has been organically certified under the GOTS International Textile Standards and recently joined the U.S. based Organic Trade Association.

As the only organically certified yarn dyeing operation in the country, we look forward to working within the industry and textile manufacturers interested both in domestic and organic production.

Long term, it is our goal to run a dyehouse where it can be said that we are re-introducing to Maine an “old world craft” in a way that addresses today’s world.  By working with city and state officials and collaborating with other manufacturers in the textile supply chain, we know we can achieve this objective.
