Tolt Yarn and Wool: Part Two

Visiting Tolt Yarn and Wool Shop was such a joyful experience for me. Yesterday I took you on a general tour of the store.  Today, I thought you might be interested in seeing some of the yarn available at Tolt.  Whoever is responsible for designing this space and displaying the yarn should be congratulated. Every item in the store is thoughtfully presented, and the store is spacious making it the perfect size to showcase the wonderful variety of yarns available.  It was so thrilling for me to actually see and touch yarn that I have only ever read about. 

Although Tolt Yarn and Wool carries brands like Madelinetosh and Malabrigo a lot of the yarn sold here is very sheepy, minimally processed and much of it is American sourced.  Below is just a small fraction of what is available.  I provided links to Ravelry for each of  the yarns pictured below although I highly recommend you visit their gorgeous online store to get further information.

When it came to picking out skeins I wanted to buy I have to be honest and say that it was overwhelming.  There were so many choices.

Of course, I finally made up my mind and here a few of the beauties I bought:
Even the packaging is pretty

  1. Thank you so much for detailed shots! This store looks way too dangerous - I would easily leave all my savings there and walk back home barefoot :) It shows through the photos how cozy and welcoming this space is... Love your choice of yarn - you have such a great taste in color, I always enjoy looking at your works in progress and finished knits.

    1. Thanks Alina...how I wish it was my neighbourhood store...I really have never seen another knitting store like it before. It was really hard to know what to buy.
