Note: Pre-orders for the 2020 batch of Elora are now closed. We will have a limited number of sets available in early September. Please join our mailing list for all updates!


Elora is a completely Canadian locally-sourced yarn. The Norbouillet (Rambouillet-cross) fleeces were purchased from Pine Hollow Farm in Ontario, sent to Wellington Fibres (a small mill) for spinning, before coming to us to be dyed in our Montreal studio. You can read more about the story of this yarn on our blog.

This fingering-weight wool is very fine, and is just as soft as our imported Merino. Our mini-skeins come in sets of 5 carefully chosen hand-dyed colours, perfect for colourwork or gradient patterns.
