Sock Yarn in Canada

top quality tweed & self-patterning wool sock yarn - now available in Canada

High quality wool and wool-blend sock yarn is now available in southern Alberta. 

Imported from Europe.

Will ship throughout North America.

Knitting socks has always been one of my favourite hobbies.  But finding appropriate yarn that doesn't itch or cause the socks to mat and pill has been much more of a challenge.

After many years of experimenting with the different lines of sock yarn available, and some help from my friend Astrid in The Netherlands, I'm happy to present you with some wonderful yarns that have been imported from Germany, Italy, Hungary, Turkey, the Netherlands, and more - all to provide you with the highest quality product possible. 

These yarns are:

  • Breathable
  • Warm
  • Soft to the touch
  • Non-felting
  • Very rugged and hard wearing
  • Retain their shape (no matter how hard we've stretched the final product!)
  • Machine Washable!  I personally guarantee your socks won't come out looking like a shrunken, sodden hairball.

Among my favourites are the self-patterning sock yarns. The socks made from these types of knitting wool are always a hit, whether as gifts or at your local craft fair.  And you can't beat the tweeds and Trekking lines for ease of use (you don't need to match the pattern).

So please do feel free to look through the pages at your leisure.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  I'm only just beginning to sell the wool online, but am  most happy to offer what I have to you.

The wool selection that is currently available can be found via the navigation menu on the left.

Should you happen to be in the Empress, Alberta area, you are also welcome to pick up the yarn. Kindly do give me a call first at 403-565-2407.


No time to knit?  
I make custom socks using these lovely yarns.  Simply choose the yarn that you would like from within these pages and email me with the color number and sock size.  I will be happy to knit them for you.    Please use the contact form on the left if you require more details.
