I adore beautiful yarn and fabric, and love trying every kind of fibre that I can. It’s all about the experience.  Along the way there are some fast favourites, and others that are a one-of kind of experience.

Many times in my life I’ve lived far from good suppliers of yarn and fabric. Thank goodness for online shopping! 

Below are some of my favourite online yarn & fabric shops. Many of them have brick and mortar locations which I have visited in person.  

This list will be updated from time to time.
