Woodland// Organic Merino Wool, milled in the GTA
I'm so happy to be able to include this fabulous fibre in my collection! Soft Merino wool that's great for next to the skin wear, a durable 3 ply, a versatile sport weight, and ethical to boot! The pure Merino wool is certified organic (GOTS), sourced from muesling free farms, unbleached, and milled in the GTA. Seriously, I did a little dance when I first discovered it, and I now think of it as an absolute staple. What more can I say?
Thicket// Soft Sheep's Wool Blend, Raised and Milled in Canada
This wool blend is sourced from 100% Canadian raised sheep. Soft and squishy, airy and bouncy, it's great for outerwear, and has beautiful definition when cabled. Ooh or make a pair of the coziest thrummed mitts. Or a giant cabled circle scarf. So many possibilities. Worsted weight.
Meadow// Organic, Ontario Raised Romney Wool
I love this yarn for so many reasons! Not the least of which is remembering fondly when I picked it up direct from the farmer at the market. But also for its gorgeous sheen, it's chunky heft, and even for the occasional tiny fleck of hay still left in it. It's a real farm yarn through and through. I love the way it glistens when cable knit. Great for hats and scarves if you're not sensitive to wool, and my would it make a stunning Aran sweater. It comes in an extra large skein of 175g.
Glacier// Core Spun Ontario Raised Wool
This super bulky wool yarn is soft and cuddly. It's core spun, which means there's a central thread running through, and the fluffy wool is spun around it to create a super bulky yarn that's still lightweight. It's raised and milled here in Ontario.
Escarpment// Fair Trade Baby Llama from Peru
Alpaca and llama yarns are thought to be up to 4 times warmer than wool, yet lightweight and oh so soft. A great choice for natural fibre lovers with skin sensitivities, or for baby clothes. Airy, yet durable. Worsted Weight.
Pearl// Ultrasoft and Vibrant Chunky Merino Wool
Merino wool is the classic choice for those with wool sensitivities. Each individual fibre (staple) is very long, which means fewer ends sticking out and causing itching. It has both natural moisture wicking properties and built in insulation. Plus, the way this yarn takes up dye is a joy- it always turns out vibrant and fully saturated, while maintaining its even softness and lofty nature. It's a great versatile chunky weight, so it knits up like a dream. Finish one skein wonder projects in hours!
