I'm super excited to finally have Covet Vests at Tutta-Mia. It's been a long time coming, but I think the timing is right; people are loving them. This particular vest is made with 100% wool that is indigo dyed using a shibori technique in order to create the unique lines that appear on the surface. It is closed with a one-of-a-kind wooden button that was also made here in Vancouver.
Gentille Alouette, a new fabulous boutique in Gastown, is also carrying my stuff. They have a 16 1/2 long white woven scarf as well as my new reversible (or upside-downible) shrugs in white and grey. I was visiting the store this afternoon and Eliza, the owner, took some photos of me wearing the shrugs as well as a fabulous dress by Eliza herself which I brought home with me :) I think she intends on posting them on their Facebook page, so check it out.
Congratulations to Stephanie Hancock, winner of our logo contest.
I love the idea of having the 'VY' in the yarn since I've been calling Vancouver Yarn by its initials for some time now. I also really like that it is a pretty pink ball of yarn. It's a great design and I'm so glad to have it as our logo. Thanks Stephanie!
Here is a picture of Stephanie at Baaad Anna's receiving her yarn winnings, ten balls of Colossal Cozy yarn, which is hand-spun here in Vancouver and hand-dyed by me.
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just send your press release to me at
