Canadian dyer and accessory shop Thread and Maple seeks to incorporate natural materials into its products such as cotton, leather, cork, and of course maple. In addition to Thread and Maple products, the shop carries Chiaogoo needles and Lykke tools such as winders and swifts.
Knitting Notions is a Tennessee-based family owned and operated business that started with making wooden yarn swifts. “What initially began as a second income in the beginning has now grown to be a full time sole income for us. Product development is an ongoing element, which includes all aspects of our woodworking, yarn dyeing and pattern publishing,” Catherine says.
