Art of Yarn was established in 2005 and was opened to meet the needs of the local knitting community. We quickly discovered that the community of knitters is a global not local phenomenon. With that discovery, we opened our online shop in 2011 to better serve knitters who didn’t have local access to the best of what the knitting community has to offer.
We are very passionate about what we do. We aim to offer a good selection of the best of what the fiber world offers, fabulous yarns, great tools, books and accessories; all the things that you might need, want and love. We love to work with fiber also, so we stock a good selection of fiber and tools for fiber felters.
It is important to us to that what we do will impact the world and life in a positive way. We always try to buy ethical products, goods produced that are kind to our environment and benefit the lives of the workers involved in the production. We hope that the creative process of working with fiber will draw people closer to the cycle of life, the natural world and be an empowering factor in their lives.
Our shop is located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Those of us who live here think it is a little heaven on earth! Kelowna is situated on Okanagan Lake, amid mountains, orchards and fabulous wineries. We hope we meet you soon in person!
