Why Hemp?
Hemp is the strongest natural fiber. Hemp can be grown in almost any conditions without the use of pesticides, chemicals or soil conditioners. Hemp fabrics and textiles offer many benefits such as easy care, comfort and durability. Hemp is resistant to mildew and bacteria and provides high protection against UV rays. The wide uses of Hemp for food, clothing, medicine, paper, and construction mediums is ever vast and growing.

Why Wool?

Wool is a natural, renewable and biodegradable fiber. Natural wool is breathable and reacts to your body temperature. Wool is easy to care for: it is odor resistant, and rarely required washing. Airing out your wool garments in the sunshine is one of the best ways to refresh them. Please note I do use "superwash" wool yarns due to the environmental impact, and the stripping of natural oils that make wool, wool.

Before creating each individual piece with my own two hands I take the time to wash and pre soften each skein of my Hemp yarn. So when it arrives to you it is soft and ready to wear.

We have recently added some new sections to the shop to make it easier for you to find the crocheted lovely you desire.

Please note I do not accept returns on intimate products.

My current turn around is 2-3 weeks for made to order items. If you need an item quicker, please send me a message.

I am a one woman show, I hand make all fiber items in my shop, hand dyed some of the yarn I use and no outsourcing.
I create all the Leather and cork Tags, reclaimed wood jewelry and buttons.

For the love of creating!

Growing up on the on Vancouver Island on West Coast of Canada, exploring the beaches, mountains, and woods has given me inspiration all my life in order to create.

I learned to crochet as a teenager and have loved it ever since. I started selling my handmade hats, scarves and fingerless mittens in 2009. I have sold my items in stores locally and across Canada.

Hemp has always held a special interest for me, not just because of its sustainability, but because of the way it behaves. Hemp yarn can be a real challenge to work with, however it has been the most rewarding. The hemp yarn I use gets softer with each wear and wash. Items that I have created over the years have lasted through washes and repeated wears. The quality is unparalleled. My desire to create easy care and excellent durable accessories and clothing is my top priority.

Our reclaimed wood jewelry and buttons started with the idea of creating our own buttons for my knitwear. Reclaiming wood from naturally fallen tree branches was another way to keep our creativity sustainable while providing unique character and charm.

    I have been crocheting for over 24 years and knitting for 5. I have been working with Hemp Yarn in particular for over 11 years. I love creating for other people though, this is my passion! Creating is my meditation.
