Important Notice

4 December, 2013: We have completed our shopping cart and payment gateway upgrade. Due to the high cost of operating in dual currencies (CAD & USD) which required two shopping cart licenses and two payment gateways and associated costs, we have consolidated everything into a single cart and payment gateway. All transactions will now be billed in US dollars since that is where the majority of our business originates. For customers in Canada who wish to avoid potential foreign currency surcharges/ exchange rate costs on their credit cards, please feel free to call us at the store and we will be happy to take your order over the phone.


The Story Of Philosopher's Wool


Mission statement
Our mission is to support sustainable agriculture, with about 25% of web sales devoted to that purpose. We have always been a fair trade company, producing wool yarn that is as natural and organic as possible.

We specialise in hand knitting kits for Fair Isle sweaters, shawls and cardigans. Our simplified
technique is available from our DVD and books.

We recently featured in a study about our business. You can read it here. (Adobe Reader required)
