Local Company Makes Olympic Closing Ceremony Sweaters

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A local company will get some national recognition come February.

 Stonehedge Fiber Mill, based out of East Jordan, is providing 4,000 pounds of yarn to Ralph Lauren. Ralph Lauren plans to use the yarn to make sweaters and caps for athletes and coaches to wear during the 2014 Winter Olympics closing ceremony.

Gov. Rick Snyder got his very own Michigan-made sweater Friday. He says showcasing our state's yarn helps to promote all the wonderful things we have to offer in "Pure Michigan."


"It highlights the wonderful innovation we have in our ag industry, what a great place. I hope people will come say 'we want to come see this place' so they'll come visit their facility. We're going to see this area grow, and I think this Olympic sweater is just going to be a highlight that's going to attract a lot more attention because it's Pure Michigan," said Gov. Rick Snyder.
