One of the most exciting things about living in Saskatchewan, and it took me a while to realize how great it is, is the small yarn producers.
I guess it makes sense because Saskatchewan is so agricultural.
The first I discovered was Princess Farms, they have great yarn. They spin and dye it themselves, and they do mail order. I bought the hand dyed sock yarn for my design Kaleidoscope here. I especially like their lace weight, hand dyed and hand spun yarns.
Here is a picture of yarn from my stash I have bought from them:
I have also recently bought some Icelandic wool from TLC Icelandics (which strictly speaking is from Alberta), but it is gorgeous and soft. Much more so than the lopi I have bought produced in Iceland. Apparently the bitter bitter cold brings out really great fibre, who could have anticipated that?
Here is a picture of the Icelandic yarn:
It is difficult to photograph this yarn without making it look like spun straw, but I can’t tell you how great it feels and it knits up beautifully.
If you want a source, and I understand they do mail order, I suggest the Wool Emporium. There are so many more.
