About me
Living in a cold climate, it only makes sense to love all things wintry and wooly. I have powerful coping strategies for dealing with harsh Canadian winters: an obsession with cross-country skiing, roaring fires, hot chocolate, and most of all, knitting!

The best way to enjoy the cold is to be wrapped in luxurious, warm natural fibres. Most weekends you'll find me curled up on my couch, carefully knitting hats, scarves, cowls and mitts, with the most beautiful yarns I can find.

My influence
My designs are influenced by the way snow softens the contours of the landscape—I favour simple shapes and soft textures.

I love wintery hues, and this is reflected in the colour palette I work with: hushed tones of dove, slate, cream, and coal. In fact, “gris” means grey in French, my mother tongue, and is my favourite colour.

My materials
The yarns I use are made of premium natural fibres: alpaca, merino, silk and cashmere. All items should be hand-washed with mild soap (gentle shampoo works well) and laid flat to dry.

Other shop info
Please refer to the item descriptions for sizing, fibre content, delivery times, etc. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. More details about my shop policies can be found here.

If you are interested in commissioning a custom item, convo me. Also let me know if you would like an item gift-wrapped.

I hope you stay warm and cozy,
Nicole
