Woolaroo Yarns in Abbotsford offers a wide selection of yarns, from novelty to more “everyday” styles. You can find wool, cotton, acrylic, linen, and even milk fibre yarns here.
One of the things I really like was that, rather than organizing yarn by brand, the shelves are labeled with the recommended stitch gauge over four inches, so it’s easy to match yarns to projects that you have in mind.
There are a lot of knitting and crochet books available, and the notions selection is good. They carry Surina needles, Denise kits, zippers, buttons, needle-felting kits, and beading supplies.
The shop has lots of samples, all over the place, so you can see and feel what yarns look like knit up, and see some great patterns as well.
I love this knitted bird mobile; it’s adorable.
The location has plenty of parking, which is always a plus. Woolaroo is one of our bag pick-up locations this year. Check them out at 32660 George Ferguson Way, Unit # 105. Abbotsford BC V2T 2V6.
Oh, I almost forgot: they have Kumihimo beading kits!
