Sweet Georgia Yarns in Vancouver started out as a small local dyer. Now they have a shop location, with their dyeing workshop in the back. Yarns and fibres from Sweet Georgia have beautiful, rich, saturated hues, and are made from lovely, high-quality bases. They’re adding a new yarn this fall, a fluffy blend of mohair and silk, that you’ll be able to check out if you visit.
Skeins that don’t make the grade for matching their intended colourway get a new life as seconds, discounted yarns that are still gorgeous and available for sale.
You might also get to take a look in back, where they have skeins of newly-dyed yarn drying, waiting to be labeled.
Sweet Georgia also offers spinning wheels for rent, which you can take a look at out in the front of the store. Their new location, 110-408 East Kent Avenue South, has lots of parking available. They’re absolutely worth a visit!
