Chocolate River Yarns & Fibres is a bricks & mortar store located in Upper LaHave, NS on the LIghthouse Route, only 7 minutes from Bridgewater and close to Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. We’re 10 minutes from the LaHave Ferry on the east side of the River.
We are Canada’s largest retailer of Henry’s Attic Yarns and offer an extensive range of undyed, natural yarns, spinning and weaving fibres and alpaca batts.
Our stock of hand dyed and painted yarns, felting fibres, pre-felts & batts are sourced in Canada. We try to support our own home grown artisans and Indie makers. We also some of the larger brand names, such as Sugar Bush and Ancient Arts that you see featured in Vogue Knitting and Interweave magazines. We continue to build stock monthly and we hope you’ll stop by the shop as it’s impossible to put everything on the website.
Canadian hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind buttons and shawl pins are a must for that special project and we have them, from Nature’s Wonders in Ontario!
Should we not have your yarn in stock, we’ll be happy to special order for you, with a $100 minimum order. Please allow for 2-6 weeks delivery. More than likely it won’t take this long, but we can’t promise! Some of our yarns come ‘from away’, as we say in the Maritimes.
Our undyed product is priced by the gram and is available by the skein and, sometimes, by cone. Our dyed yarns are priced by the ball or skein. Some we have in stock and others will have to be ordered. Please read the yarn description carefully.
We are searching for unique product from our locale – exotic fleeces, hand spun yarns, hand-dyed fibres, handcrafted needles/hooks, spinning wheels, original patterns…whatever we can find that pertains to the industry. It is our goal to support & feature Canadian artists, designers, crafters and small ranchers. As we source new items, we will add to our inventory. Your inquiries and suggestions are welcome!
We welcome your comments about our site and the products we sell. In particular if there is a product you’d like to buy that we don’t stock, please let us know and we’ll do our best to source it for you.
While we don’t sell online, we will be happy to ship items to you with prepayment. Just email or phone if you have a request.
