Knitting Industry Changes

My Dear Customers & Friends,

There has been many changes in the knitting industry this year, some good and some bad!

The exchange rate is surely not helping, but some American distributors are helping Canadian retailers by giving us a percentage off the cost of the yarn, so that we can sell it at a reasonable price to you the customer. Unfortunately the new British distributor of the Rowan, Schakenmayr and Regia yarns is doing the opposite. They have increased the Canadian retail prices of these yarns by 30-60%. For the good news, I have stocked up on many of the Rowan yarns and will be able to maintain the current prices for a while.

The table below provides you with the current and new prices of Rowan yarns, as you will notice many yarns are not on the list because they have been discontinued:
