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.

Baa-Realis Fibre

I’ve been a knitter for as long as I can remember. I’m a wife, a mom of four, a nurse, a dyer… I wear many hats (the best ones being hand knit toques of course!) I live outside the city, right in the middle of both farmland and forest. I draw my colour inspiration from the beauty around me, both around my home, and around this province full of immense mountain beauty and endless prairie beauty. Digging my hands deep in fibre and colour is a slow deep breath for me, both calming and prayerful. I love slowing down to experience the tactile delight of fibre arts, and helping others to do the same. The shop name comes from my love of the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis, which my kids and I frequently watch from our back yard.

Comfy Cozy

When I am working with yarn, I feel comforted and at ease.

My inspiration comes from family, things that I see in nature, and experiences or images that bring me joy.

Her Leather

HerLeather Co.

I love, love, love to create and make things. I've always loved natural materials such as linen, wool and leather, but anything made in leather always takes my breath away and I always have to feel and check it out. I tend to recycle, repurpose and mend before buying new. I have a mix of re-purpurposed and new leather and turn these simple pieces into unique and beautiful items. I’ve always wanted to learn to knit and this past Christmas I had the opportunity to take some classes. I’ve made a few things and am excited to make more. Knowing more about knitting and what items are used has helped me understand what features I need to include in my bags.

Imagine Yarn

Imagine Yarn

My final product is hand dyed long curly locks that people use to add texture to weavings, spinning yarn, felting, doll hair or wall hangings.  The process to get there is what I love.  I build relationships with the sheep farmers, pick the fleeces with the most curls and pull every lock by hand.  Then they get washed and hand dyed to create beautiful long curly colored locks for artists to add to their creations. I have started using Indigo  Dye and its just amazing, an art form that takes years to master....each vat is different and I learn something new each time. Enjoy the colors of my work.

Little House of Macrame

Little House of Macrame

I've been drawn to creating with my hands from early childhood. Having explored many different mediums, I have found that hand weaving and macrame provides a wonderful balance of structure and freedom. The ˜canvas" begins as long strings hanging from the driftwood or dowel and blank warp ends threaded on my loom, while the design builds knot by knot and line by line in a slow reveal until the piece is finished. It's not until I've knot the last knot or cut the woven piece free from the loom that I see the work in its entirety and it takes on a life of its own.

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!

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.

Twilight Stitches

Twilight Stitches

Twilight Stitches grew out of the opportunity to slow life down and try a new art form. I grew up interested in art and different art forms but found a true passion in fiber arts these past couple of years. I began my embroidery journey by making kits and patterns from other artists. This quickly evolved into me designing and creating my own pieces of art. Most of the time I can't keep up with all the ideas in my head and I hope to be able to create everything I envision one day! I draw my inspiration from things that interest me but lately have found that to be different tattoo artists and designs. If it's something I would want to hang in my apartment or have on my body then I want to stitch it :) And I hope to inspire others to create in a similar way by providing kits and patterns for them to try!

Two, we carry products that are all produced from raw materials from nature. We have made a choice to not carry highly processed manmade fibres.
Three, we have researched to find minimal packaging that is plastic free so that you, the consumer, can repurpose, recycle or compost it. Even down to the glue on our packing tape.

We know that today's world is hectic and that we all are seeking activities to heal and nourish our souls. We invite you to sit down with us. To take a moment to slow down. And create.
