Little Red Mitten
The Little Red Mitten is a local yarn shop which offers a wide selection of quality hand knitting and spinning supplies. The store is in a restored heritage house in the historic district of St. Thomas, located across from the famous Jumbo monument.
Little Red Mitten carries primarily natural fibres including wool, alpaca, cashmere, cotton and bamboo, and some acrylic blends, all in a wide selection of colours and styles. They carry wool from suppliers in Canada and the US, as well as many countries around the world. Knitting needles are available in many different styles and they also have a wide selection of books, patterns, and magazines. Little Red Mitten is a dealership for Majacraft Spinning Wheels.
Majacraft is a family owned and operated company in New Zealand, dedicated to the development of the finest double treadle spinning wheels. If you’ve always wanted to “spin a fine yarn”, Little Red Mitten carries a selection of gorgeous hand spinning fibres and wooden hand spindles. They also carry the Table Loom and Knitters Loom from Ashford, for those who love to weave. Little Red Mitten is a beehive of activity and a gathering place for everyone interested in the craft of knitting and other fibre arts. They offer a variety of classes in knitting, spinning, crocheting, and other related crafts with experienced teachers. Loyal customers have formed social knitting groups, which meet on Wednesday afternoons and Friday evenings in the shop’s community room. And for those who love to knit for charity, they offer a collection point for finished items and a box of ‘oddballs’ of yarn to donate – recycling at its best!
