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.

There currently isn't any wool available in the  navigation menu on the left due to supplier shortages.  We will update once new yarn arrives.  Thank you for your patience!
