Unique Gift Ideas for the Yarnie
For the yarn lover that has a satisfying stash, we have more gift ideas that you can’t find at other yarn stores to add to your wish list. We countdown our top seven favorites for the week leading up to Knitmas…
#7: THIS JUST IN! Yesterday we opened a package of this amazing new 100% organic cotton bedding in Twin, Queen or King-size (with pillows). Duvet cover set with photographic print comes in soft percaline cotton with a thread count of 160 designed in Amsterdam and made in Portugal. Get your oversized comfy knit with NO PILLING guaranteed!
King $230; Queen $215; Twin $190 (but we only have one of each size available; pre-orders for a early Jan order are also being taken)
#6: Have you ever had the chance to use hand woven tea-towels in your kitchen? They are gorgeous, absorbent and can thrown in the washer and dryer to come out as pretty as ever. Purchased on our travels during our summer yarny roadtripping , these come from the Kootenays and the lovely ladies of the Selkirk Weavers and Spinners Guild.
#5: A affordable bit of luxury: Our collaboration yarn Baaad Sarah’s was launched in the Fall to make local Canadian hand dyed yarn accessible to all fibre artists! Check out what Baaad Anna’s and Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Arts were able to achieve together!
#4: We put together two grab-and-go packages for the fibre artist in your life including one for ‘Every Yarnie’ and one for the ‘Sock Knitter’. An easy gift with a few staples and treats for any yarnie.
Price: ‘Every Yarnie Needs’ set $55; ‘Sock Lovers’ set $105
#3: Celebrating our love of self-striping socks, check out these hand-dyed Hogwarts, Cakes & Sprinkles and Foxy Gentlemen inspired stripes by Canadian dyer Yarn Enabler!
#2: For anyone interested in dappling in fibre arts as a new year’s resolution, there is no more immediately rewarding fibre art than needle felting. Here’s everything you need to get started!
#1: And we can’t forget our absolute favorite! A full wall of recently arrived sweater-quantity Hedgehog Fibre Arts in sooooo many colours! Yummmmm…
