    I found this incredibly interesting but I have to wonder, what would the list look like in 2013? I know that the last yarn company left in 2012. That was the last fabric company headquartered in Lowell. They moved to Billerica and were called “Classic Elite Yarns.” I often wonder why we could not help them stay.
