It's imperative to keep a well-maintained supply of yarn on hand, for you never know when an emergency may call for an argyle tourniquet or heart-starting crocheted bikini. Today's Groupon hooks up your hooks and needles with superior woolen wares: for $15, you get $30 worth of yarn, patterns, and more at Wool Trends on Hamilton Avenue.
A second home to local knitters and crocheters, Wool Trends locks and loads area yarn artists with kilometres of local and imported yarns, patterns, supplies, and more, all curated by a knitter with more than 40 years of worldly weaving experience. Browse a bounty of woolen wares available in just about every yarn weight, quality, and composition, such as the 136 Merino Superwash, whose rich colours give rainbows identity crises ($6.99), or the Sirdar Snuggly babybamboo, a blend of 80 per cent bamboo and 20 per cent wool engineered to replicate the hypnotic softness of a puppy belly ($5.99). Locally made yarn from Baynoddy complements any of Wool Trends' plethora of patterns, which include a stunning array of garments and accessories, such as crocheted sweaters, elegant shawls, and baby's first tri-cornered hat.
