This is a great place to stop and see some of the hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns from British Columbia. Features shawl pins, buttons, and stitch markers made locally. This shop carries Hiya Hiya and ChiaGoo needles. Other yarns brands of note: Blue Sky Alpaca, Malabrigo, Spud & Chloe, Diamond, Sirdar, Viking, Rowan, Noro & Sublime.

Visited recently on vacation. A physically smaller store, but there is lots of yarn. I really like that they carry yarn from independent dyers such as: Sweet Georgia, Yarn Candy, Painted Fleece, Indigo Moon etc. The owner was really friendly and gave the BF a candy cane. Will be back next time I am in the area.

It's a small but lovely place. With a lot of yarns. Great choice of local brands. The owner is very friendly. She even let me wind my yarn which I haven't buy there! I'll come definitly back when I'm in the area.

Small shop, but super cute. Lots of local handspun which was gorgeous - but pricey. Some interesting ideas that I hadn't tried out, bought some katia paper yarn - excited to make a market bag with it. The woman in the store was very helpful and sweet - which was a change compared to a lot of service in Tofino!

Visited there on my vacation in early July. Lovely yarn shop, I bought a kit for Whale watching Wellie warmers, awesome liners for rubber boots. Bought some bamboo needles to start the project with and used the kit to teach my son's girlfriend to knit. She and my son are there teaching surfing lessons at 2 of the local surf schools.
