Sweet Yarns shawl

Canada 150 Shawl with handcrafted wooden shawl stick.

This shawl was designed by Lauren Raymond, owner of Sweet Yarns,  in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. It features three maple leaves, one for each fifty years, and four celebratory fireworks. It is a limited-edition pattern and is available for this Summer 2017 only.

The kits feature Orange Octopus’ hand dyed Canada 150 fingering weight yarn that was dyed specifically for the kits. Paula Hilts, owner of  the Orange Octopus, runs her company out of her home in Cobalt.

Some kits also include handmade wooden shawl sticks with maple leaf decoration. Each stick is handcrafted by Gary Fleischauer of Nature’s Wonders at his home in Hanover.
