A love for the weird, wonderful, and handmade

We're Luke and Joy, a husband and wife team from Waterloo, Ontario, who love to craft and want to share that love with other fibre-loving people! Our shop draws inspiration from the grandfather of the modern museum: the cabinet of curiousities. Here you'll find yarn, bags, and progress keepers/stitch markers that evoke the strange and wonderful and antique.

THE YARN (By Joy): Our yarn is dyed in small batches with a combination of acid dyes and natural dyes. We love painterly palettes and rich colours that tell a story all their own.

THE BAGS (By Luke): Luke sews these sweet cotton bags on his grandmother's 1960s Singer machine, lovingly carrying on the tradition of this particular craft. We like vintage-inspired fabrics -- and sometimes patterns that are a little creepy too.

THE CHARMS (By Joy): Each of these polymer clay charms is sculpted and painted entirely by hand. Some of them are meant to remind crafters of beautiful antique botanical drawings, others are inspired by specimen jars, and more. The charms are entirely one of a kind!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

We are happy to consider custom orders on our progress keepers and yarn, but they may take anywhere from 1-3 weeks longer to be fulfilled than read-to-ship orders. Custom progress keepers won't take as long as yarn, simply because we have to order in your yarn, and supply can sometimes be an issue.

Naturally Dyed Yarns

Some of our naturally dyed colourways are dependent on season, since we harvest the ingredients ourselves and don't use pre-packaged dyes. For example, VICTORIAN CORSET and TALLOW CANDLES are seasonal colourways. CRUSHED PETALS, PAVLOVA'S SLIPPERS, and HER BLUE CALICO DRESS are available year-round.

Local Orders

If you're in the Kitchener-Waterloo area and are able to pick up your yarn in person, please send us a convo before your order, and we'd be happy to give you a coupon for free shipping!
