made in Canada

I spent the weekend at a county fair an hour’s drive east of Montreal. Amidst the animals, preserves, handicrafts, and everything else that gives a fair its charms, I came across a couple selling home-grown, hand-dyed, hand-spun sheep’s wool. I picked out five beautifully coloured skeins of thick and sturdy yarn from Hatley, QC. This material feels and smells more hearty and natural than any fibre I’ve worked with, and I’m delighted to be adding local wools to my collection.
