Wool. Love. Creativity. The Simple Pleasures.
I originally started crocheting about 8 years ago with my mom and the craft fever began! I love to create beautiful things and Winter Woolies is a great outlet for this passion of mine.
Currently I am based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada where the temperamental weather can be chilly all year round. Toques and big wool scarves have become a Canadian staple, so why not make them unique, handmade and beautiful.
Originally I sold my toques and hats to close friends and family but in the last year Winter Woolies has grown exponentially thanks to wonderful people who love the woolies as much as I do. My inspiration comes from everything around me, I visit local yarn stores and look at the colors and threads and envision what I want to make it into. I love earthy tones and natural colors that compliment even the pickiest shopper and take extra care to pick out top quality wool.
One of my favorite Wools to create with is my Kettle Dyed Merino Wool, the highest quality material to date. It is temperature regulating and has hypo-allergenic characteristics for those with sensitive skin to avoid the classic "itch" that wool usually causes.
I love to create beautiful things for people who appreciate the time and effort that goes into every item. Thank you to everyone who has either bought a Woolie or has helped me along this wonderful journey with their support and love to keep me doing what I love to do.
