Wool and the Gang has hit the shelves!

Wool and the Gang has arrived at our little Canadian corner of the yarn store world!

I’m not sure about you guys, but I’ve loved working with Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool for the past few years – its a great market prep yarn (super bulky forever!), and the yardage is very generous for the price!

There are a so many things I love about the Wool and the Gang company – but how they approach sustainability is my favorite… They ethically source their wool – its 100% mulesing-free. 63% of their yarn is biodegradable, 47% is vegan and 32% is recycled or upcycled.

Why we use string for our Faux Fur Pom Poms

We’ve had some questions lately about why we use string to create our faux fur pom poms… Or more why don’t we use snaps. We have a few reasons and I think this will help you know why we continue to stick to our original strings.
