About

Natural, handmade and sustainable chunky wool knits and other natural fibers.

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by my shop! I’m in my 50’s and happy to have started a business that I am passionate about. I've been knitting since I was a teenager and absolutely fell in love with it. I started making chunky toques, scarves and blankets for my home and family and when my friends saw them they were blown away at the beauty. So I thought hey maybe I should make some for the local farmers market and they were a big hit! Then I started developing a few lines of natural products including wool, linen and cotton.
My husband made me a large spinning wheel so I could spin this big wool. I have a home studio where I do most of my spinning, knitting and creating. I love working with natural fibers because it makes me feel good - just like putting fruits and vegetables into my body, I want natural fibers on my body.
My family and friends are the most important thing to me, my world revolves around them. I support the local addiction recovery centre because when one person gets clean it has a positive ripple effect, reaching up to 200 people. In my spare time I like to paint and draw.
One of my favourite things to do is go hiking right outside my back door and 2 years ago hiked a part of the Camino de Santiago by myself in Spain.
Currently I am on the board for the local Penticton farmers market.
I have been accepted into prestigious juried shows in Canada - One of a kind Toronto, Circle Craft Vancouver and Art Market in Calgary.

    Hi, My name is Avi and I’m the designer and owner of this shop. At the age of 50 I decided to leave a secure office job to pursue making products with natural fibers because I wanted to live a more authentic life in harmony with the planet.
