Norbouillet Project Gallery

It's that time of year again! Our 2020 batch of Norbouillet fleece is already at the mill, ready to be custom-spun into this year's batch of our locally-sourced, 100% Canadian yarns.

This year as we were setting up pre-orders for our Norbouillet yarns we took some time to look through all the beautiful projects that our customers have made with them over the past few years, and we were inspired to share a few of our favourites here. Thank you so much to everyone who gave us permission to share your photos!

We're taking pre-orders again this year for the two yarns we use the Norbouillet fleece for because it helps us to decide how much of each weight of yarn to spin, since our Elora mini-skein sets are fingering weight and Norwood is DK weight. (It also allows you to order exactly what you want in advance!)

If you'd like to learn a little bit more about where these yarns come from, we shared the story of how we first started working with Norbouillet fleeces in this blog post. If you'd like to learn a more about how the pre-orders work you can find all the details on our FAQs page.

Indigo Dye Experiments
Indigo Dye Experiments

by Debbie Sullivan June 16, 2020

It's been over two months now since we had to temporarily shut down the dye studio to wait out COVID-19. We've been able to have limited access to the studio again for the past few weeks, and I'm happy to be back! But last month when I still didn't have access I was itching to play with colour again, and realized that in amongst all the yarn and other products that I'd hauled home back in March, I had some indigo dye kits. I didn't have any of my other dyeing equipment with me, but indigo doesn't require heat or mordanting to set, so it was the perfect solution for me to scratch that dyeing itch!

As part of our 100 days of patterns retrospective, we'll be sharing some project galleries featuring some favourite projects made from our patterns.
