Fleece Artist Celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday with the National Parks Collection

As you probably already know, this summer is Canada’s 150th birthday and there are all kinds of fun projects and initiatives cropping up in communities across Canada. The fibre arts community is no exception! Our friends at Fleece Artist in Nova Scotia have created 13 new colourways in Merino Slim inspired by Canada’s National Parks, one for each province and territory. We’ve got 4 skeins of each colourway and we are in LOVE with this new collection. Come in and see for yourself!

Their Inspiration:

Nova Scotia – Sable Island – Ponies, lonely beaches and shipwrecks

New Brunswick – Fundy – Flowerpot cliffs, sandstone and roaring tides

PEI – Greenwich Dunes – Parabolic dunes, marram grass, horizon sea

Newfoundland and Labrador – Gros Morne – Majestic fjords, tabletop mountains, craggy forests

Quebec – Forillon – Grey Cliffs of Mont-Saint-Alban and meadows of fireweed

Ontario – Thousand Islands -Islands of granite with pine and autumn foliage reflected in lake water

Manitoba -Riding Mountain – Wild Buffalo and black bears

Saskatchewan – Grasslands – Summer fields under blue prairie sky

Alberta – Banff – Turquoise waters of Moraine Lake, rocky mountains and alpine forests

British Colombia – Gwaii Haanas – Moss draped cedar, mists and memories of totems past

Yukon – Kluane – Rippling curtains of Aurora Borealis

North West Territories -Aulavik – Bright contrast Sea coast of the Arctic Ocean

Nunavut – Sirmilik- Shimmering glaciers and ice fields
