Elora - 125g skeins
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.
New for 2022! For the first time this year we're offering extra-large 125g full skeins of Elora, perfect for pairing with our Elora mini-skein sets for larger projects.
Also new for 2022, we were able to purchase small amounts of three natural shades along with the cream fleece we usually buy. We're happy to offer these to you along with some hand-dyed neutrals that will coordinate well with our mini-skein sets.
This fingering-weight wool is very fine, and is just as soft as our imported merino.
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.
For more information on working with hand-dyed yarns, please see our FAQs page.
