Hand-dyed yarns, ethically sourced

RainCityKnits ☂ is a tiny dye studio located in the heart of Chinatown, one of Vancouver’s oldest neighborhoods.

The hallmark of RainCityKnits ☂ is bright, oversaturated colours. We think our palette is the perfect antidote to the endless grey season here on the West Coast.

We try to source our supplies as ethically or locally as possible. We hope to use Canadian-sourced fibre in the future.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I learned to knit in New Zealand, a country with more sheep than people. I love bright colours - the perfect antidote to the grey skies of the Pacific Northwest where I now dwell.
