Welcome to Riverside Yarns
This summer we're showing off the work of three local dyers who we would never have met had we not bought Riverside Yarns a year ago: Jeffi Farquharson of shantiknits, Rhichard Devrieze of The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze, and Bonnie Perry of Woolies in the Country.
Jeffi captured the summer colours of the forests and beaches that sweep down to Georgian Bay in her delightful 'Ainsley Woods'. Jeffi developed this colour way exclusively for Riverside Yarns to help us celebrate the summer of 2020.
We’re also smitten by the summer colours of Rhichard’s ‘Huron Sunset,’ and have asked him to bring in as much of it as he has! Summer sunsets on Georgian Bay and Lake Huron are legendary for their drama and boldness - this colour way in Thede brings that fire onto your needles.
Bonnie Perry’s yarns are the epitome of local. Bonnie farms near Chatsworth, Ontario, and uses fleece from her pet Romney sheep, Angora goats, and alpacas to create irresistible one-of-a-kind yarns. The beauty of Woolies in the Country is that the animals decide what the yarn will look like.
