Peace Fleece


In 1985 Peter had an idea and traveled to Moscow with a proposal. If he could find a Russian family who would sell him wool, he would buy it and bring it back to Maine to blend with US wool and make a yarn called Peace Fleece. Central to the creation of Peace Fleece was the belief that if historic enemies could do business together, the potential for conflict between them might be reduced. The Russian and US fiber would be spun together, and the hats and sweaters knit from this yarn would affirm that Soviet-American cooperation was possible. “Warm wool from a Cold War” became the Peace Fleece motto.
