Filigree - Sport

3 items left

Filigree is a 1-ply sport weight yarn with generous yardage. This yarn is 100% Canadian, made with a dorset-base down type wool sourced from Ontario, spun in New Brunswick, and hand-dyed in our Montreal studio. Filigree has a beautifully “toothy” texture and comes in 20 rich and vibrant shades, making it a perfect choice for colourwork.

You can read more about the origins of this yarn on our blog.

Eventually we settled on working with wool from Circle R Livestock, a family farm in southern Ontario operated by Romy and Ryan Schill and their children.
