Elora - set of 6 mini-skeins

2 items left

Our 2022 batch of Elora is now in stock! This yarn is spun from locally-sourced Canadian Norbouillet wool. We're only able to buy this special fleece once a year, so these yarns are available while supplies last. Please join our mailing list for all updates on Elora and our other limited-edition yarns.


Elora is a completely Canadian locally-sourced yarn. The Norbouillet (Rambouillet-cross) fleeces are 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. This extended version of our Elora set comes with 6 hand-dyed mini-skeins, perfect for colourwork or gradient patterns.

For more information on working with hand-dyed yarns, please see our FAQs page.
