One year has gone by since I opened the door to my little yarn and gift shop on Martin Grove Rd. It has the feel of a studio and is nice and bright. I enjoy working here on my own but I love to welcome friends, old and new to drop in for a visit! Although my focus is on alpaca yarns, I also have other alpaca products and knitting accessories for sale. My sources are local as much as possible and I enjoy supporting other artists who make items by hand as well as informing you about alpaca events you might be interested in attending.
What can you find at Alpaca Avenue???
You will find a growing selection of yarn in various weights and blends from Canada and the US. (I am currently researching suppliers of Suri yarn and hope to add that soon.) I have alpaca rovings for spinners and felters. Other alpaca items include alpaca duvets, socks, ties & insoles. I carry a small but unique selection of yarn bowls, hand made project bags, shawl pins and birch knitting needles. Patterns are so easy to purchase on line now but I do keep a selection of patterns printed on nice card stock. I love to knit and offer a selection of hand knitted items for sale. All natural hand made soaps (lavender and 2 new fragrances) with ceramic soap dishes, all natural hand lotions and Soap nuts (a natural laundry detergent) are appropriate for gift giving at many occasions.
If you are a member of Toronto Knitters Guild, you are entitled to a 10% discount on purchases in my store. For the month of October, I am offering everyone the same discount to everyone. This will apply to on line purchases also.
Looking forward to a new season! Have a wonderful day:)
