National Parks

We have ordered the National Parks Collection from Fleece Artist and it will be in the store later this summer.
In honour of Canada’s 150th Birthday we have curated a collection in our Merino Slim highlighting 13 of Canada’s National Parks, one for each province and territory.

Merino Slim
100% merino
There will be 4 skeins of each colourway coming. It will be hard to choose!

The inspiration
Nova Scotia – Sable Island – Ponies, lonely beaches and shipwrecks 
New Brunswick – Fundy – Flowerpot cliffs, sandstone and roaring tides 
Prince Edward Island – Greenwich Dunes –  Parabolic dunes, marram grass, horizon sea 
Newfoundland and Labrador – Gros Morne – Majestic fjords, tabletop mountains, craggy forests 
Quebec – Forillon  – Grey Cliffs of Mont-Saint-Alban and meadows of fireweed 
Ontario – Thousand Islands -Islands of granite with pine and autumn foliage reflected in lake water 
Manitoba –Riding Mountain  – Roaming bison and black bears 
Saskatchewan – Grasslands  – Summer fields under blue prairie sky 
Alberta – Banff  – Turquoise waters of Moraine Lake, rocky mountains and alpine forests 
British Colombia –  Gwaii Haanas  – Moss draped cedar, mists and memories of totems past 
Yukon – Kluane – Rippling curtains of Aurora Borealis 
Northwest Territories –Aulavik – Bright contrast Sea coast of the Arctic Ocean 
Nunavut – Sirmilik– Shimmering glaciers and ice fields
I need to do some traveling to see these sights.

A customer asked with concern about the store being closed next week. I am going on vacation, there isn't anything wrong. It's Beth's birthday and we decided to head out of town for a few days.

The store will be closed Wednesday July 5 - Monday July 10. We'll be open again on Tuesday July 11. 

This is the first time ever that we have closed the store for holidays. It will be weird not calling to check in and see how the day is. I talk to the store every day. Even on my trips to New Zealand.
