New Yarn from Fleece & Harmony 
- We were hoping to have had this for Woolith Fair but it did not arrive in time. :(

  • This is a new farm & wool mill in Belfast, Prince Edward Island. The yarn is made from their own sheep, as well as sheep from around PEI.

We have 3 lines:

  • Baby Boo, which is 100% lambswool and meant for baby things
  • Fleece & Harmony Heritage, which is 100% wool, and very squishy. It is a thick worsted yarn, almost an Aran weight
  • Fingering, which is fluffy enough to sub as a sportweight yarn. It is 100% wool, and would make an amazing shawl or sweater!

We have looms! 
We are now stocking/selling looms and weaving equipment from Ashford. We have a couple of 16” and 24” Rigid Heddle looms in stock, and can order other sizes by special order. We will be holding a beginner weaving class soon, if you are local 
* you can rent a loom while taking the class if you do not already have one, or want to try it out before buying.

We talk a little about the challenges of sweater knitting when you are a beginner. If you want to share your own stories, do so in our Ravlery group! :)
