New Store In Town

We are excited about a new store, Electrictree Yarns, opening up in downtown Kamloops this Tuesday.  Caroline is the owner who started out selling her own hand died yarns and knitting accessories on Etsy.  She decided to take the plunge and open her own brick and mortar store.  As you can see, the decor is very elegant with a cozy atmosphere.

The store has a wide range of products for weaving, knitting, crocheting and fibre arts.  They have some really cool yarns that I never even knew existed.  Yarns made from materials like bamboo or pineapple skins for instance.  Or a sock yarn called Tofutsies consisting of wool, cotton, soysilk (a byproduct of manufacturing tofu) and Chitin (made from shrimp and crabshells).

There are soft hemp yarns and a cool paper linen yarn which actually feels like paper until it is softened when washed.

Besides all the yarns, there is a wide range of accessories, books and of course our very own handcrafted buttons and shawl pins.

We wish them all the best on their grand opening this Tuesday and if you are in the area, be sure to stop in and check them out.
