All Points North

All Points North Yarn Co.

All Points North Yarn Co is small-batch, quality yarn, crafted with colour, love, and possibly a smidge of swear words! Started in 2019, APN filled a need for locally-dyed yarns in our small town of 100 Mile House, BC, and allowed  me to express myself and grow my creativity with colour.

Comfy Cozy

Comfy Cozy Knits

When I am working with yarn, I feel comforted and at ease. This starts when I am preparing the yarn to be worked with, all the way through to when I am finished processing the yarn and working with it in a project. My inspiration comes from family, things that I see in nature, and experiences or images that bring me joy.

Fireweed Fibre

Fireweed Fibre Co.

When I first discovered hand dyed yarn I found a lot of neutrals, pastels and muted colours. I had a hard time finding the bold, bright colours I wanted to knit with. I bought some bare yarn and a dyeing starter kit and I fell in love with dyeing. I love dyeing bold colours and fierce speckles on yarn and fibre.

Naturally for Ewe

Naturally for Ewe

Hi I'm Cathy Eisenmenger, an army veteran and grandma happily living in Devon, AB. Almost 2 decades ago I fell down the hand spinning rabbit hole after becoming addicted to the unique vitality of 100% natural hand spun yarns. There is magic in transforming natural fibres and by the craft and skill of two hands create something that is lovingly used, worn or even just admired. Let me and my fellow artisans help kindle your own love affair for fibres naturally for '"ewe". Spread the joy "Viva Slow Textile"!

Neatnik

Neatnik Yarns

Neatnik Yarns are hand dyed yarns that are anything but ordinary! Always one to search out the elusive bright, variegated colourways, when Angela (the human behind Neatnik Yarns) started dyeing her own yarns in 2018 it made perfect sense for her to gravitate towards the biggest, boldest and baddest yarns she could find!

Since then, Angela has been on a fantastical fibre adventure. Already at home knitting and crocheting, her spinning wheel arrived right as the pandemic hit in March of 2020, giving her time to play and hone her skills creating art yarn. By the fall of 2020 she was selling hand dyed fibre for spinning and creating Wooly Wall Hangings as a way to channel her love for her colourful and chunky art yarn. In December 2020 she bought her first rigid heddle loom. And that was it. Now she has three.
Since discovering weaving, Angela has expanded her yarn bases to include cotton and non-superwash bases, with the goal of making all the things with her yarns! Whether you are a knittier, crocheter, weaver, tapestry maker or hand knitter, she’s got a yarn for you!

Nomad Fibreworks

Nomad Fibreworks

Alliston Findlay of Nomad Fibreworks has been creating handspun yarns, spinnable and feltable fibre since 2010 from her home on Treaty 6 Territory in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton). Absolutely drawn to the pretty pretty soft soft sheep's wools, silks and sparkles; she hopes to create products for your knitting, crochet, weaving, felting and crafting needs.

Numana Yarns

Numana Yarns

Numana Yarns is an indie-dyed yarn company that started in September 2020. It is based in Sherwood Park, AB, and run by Tammy Bylsma. While it started as a hobby to keep busy after the pandemic completely dried up her travel agency business, it quickly became apparent that it’s faster to dye yarn than it is to use it.

Many of the colourways have a story behind the name, and we love to share those stories on social media when the colourway is released. We carry a wide range of bases and offer sweater quantity custom orders of most of our colourways. We carry an extensive selection of sock yarn as that is our number one seller, but offer weights from lace to super bulky.
