our yarns are named for our favourite parts of ontario

TOBERMORY WORSTED

Tobermory Ontario sits up on the Bruce Peninsula and is a popular tourist spot. Tito and I have only visited in the winter, and the ice coating the trees off Georgian Bay left us longing for thick, cuddly knits. Accordingly, Tobermory Worsted is our thickest yarn; a worsted so heavy it's closer to Aran weight.

Escarpment DK

The Niagara Escarpment is a long escarpment in the United States and Canada that runs predominantly east/west. The escarpment is most famous as the cliff over which the Niagara River plunges at Niagara Falls. We live in Burlington, which is bordered by Lake Ontario on the south and the Escarpment in the north. Hardworking and lovely, this DK yarn is perfect for a hike up to Rattlesnake point.

Killarney Sock

Killarney is a municipality located on the northern shore of Georgian Bay in the Sudbury District of Ontario, Canada. Killarney is commonly associated with Killarney Provincial Park. We've driven to Killarney park on only one occasion and I was blown away by the natural beauty of the region. With a high nylon content and great stitch definition, this yarn shines on socks, shawls, sweaters, and anything else you can imagine.

MUSKOKA LUXE DK

Muskoka is cottage country around here, and also one of the inspiration sites for the Group of Seven painters. It is synonymous with luxury which is why we chose it for this yarn. With a high cashmere content AND nylon you can use it for the most decadent socks possible, garments meant to drape, and gloves. Cowls against your skin will feel buttery soft.

Point Pelee Lace

Point Pelee is the southernmost tip of Canada - from a latitudinal level it's the same as Northern California. During much of the year it's comparably warm, making us think of light knits and featherweight cardigans. It's more of a light fingering than a true lace, and this combined with the generous yardage makes it a true pleasure to work with.
