Big Stitch Yarn - Friendly Service - Luxury Fun!

I started my first business, Mama Knows Clips and Crochet inc., in 2013 after my second daughter was born. I was making Soother Clips and boy oh boy has it grown since then. In my other shop ( I sell handmade items including Soother Clips, Mitten Clips, Crochet Apparel and other useful and beautiful things. I have had a tonne of success in that shop and have learned so much about being a handmade vendor over the past couple of years. One thing that has always frustrated me is the inability to access certain supplies. Sometimes I couldn't get them due to prohibitive shipping costs to Canada, other times they weren't available or were unethically or cheaply made and other times they just didn't exist. Since then I have invented and created many types of supplies including slipper soles, hand knitted Icord yarn, giant Pom poms and more. The catalyst came when I decided that I wanted to start making ultra chunky Merino blankets. At the time I could not find a way to get the yarn I needed in Canada at a reasonable cost!! Over the past few months I have developed a relationship with Ashland Bay, one of the premier wool suppliers in North America. So here we are today, as a western Canadian (or anywhere else) you can now find ultra high quality Merino Thick Roving Yarn at an affordable price! Even better... It is sourced responsibly and ethically and comes from a North American company, meaning we are doing our part to support and nurture an economic environment that needs local $ to stay local.
Thanks for doing business with me, I appreciate each and every one of you!!
