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 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. Available in 2 ply Fingering or 3 Ply DK.

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.

Glacier// Super Bulky Superwash Merino Wool, milled in the GTA

This is a new yarn, and I couldn't be more excited about it. It's one of those yarns you would want to dive into a whole pile of. Absolutely one of the softest wools I have ever felt, it's perfect for next-to-the-skin projects. And it knits up like a dream- it's so chunky you can finish a project in just a few hours. The pure superwash Merino wool is sourced from muesling free farms in New Zealand and milled in the GTA.

Grove// Shimmering Bamboo Yarn

If you're looking for a vegan yarn, or a cool plant based yarn for your warm weather knitting, this is for you!  Grove is one of my most popular yarns- it positively glistens and is often mistaken for silk. It is lustrous, so soft, and has a wonderful drape when worked up. One of the fastest growing plants, bamboo is a renewable resource. I've even heard bamboo fibres have antibacterial and UV protection properties!
