...that time is one of humankind’s great, misspent gifts. In the act of knitting, crocheting, felting, making, we reclaim time and give a little of our care back to ourselves. At Saltwater Purls, we believe in wool that is worth it. Worth your time, your skill, and your heart. We offer you only what we would offer ourselves. You won’t find everything here, but everything you find here will be worth it.
Always great service and great products from Saltwater Purls
A beautifully made little tin with a lid that glides so nicely. The colours and imagery are inspiring! And Saltwater Purls takes such care in the packaging and shipping. Joy!
This is an absolutely delightful pairing. I ordered the mohair, and the extra yarn, and I am sure I I’ll be glad that I did.
Love saltwater purls! The best pairings and the squishiest of yarns!
Confession time: I’m already planning my next order! Until now, I’ve always thought stitch markers were a bit of a silly spend and that I’d rather save my pennies for the yarn, so I’ve been tying bits of old yarn, just as my grandmother showed me. While, she was the Queen of Thrift, we can all use a bit of frivolity to brighten our days!
These stitch markers are so darling that I cast on a new project almost as soon as I opened the parcel. Now I understand! As another reviewer commented: knitting bling. Treat yourself. Saltwater Purls is lovely to purchase from! Everything was so carefully packaged. Love!
Awesome service and live live loved the needles. Trying to figure how to get a whole set . I have used steel needles before and not crazy about them. Really liked these. Thanks
So happy to be able to purchase more of this lovely yarn as I prep for a new and exciting design. Thanks for winding it for me as well! As always, GREAT service.
The needles are awesome and the customer service for local pickup was very fast. Will be ordering again!
So far I’ve used the 2.25 14”. I love them.
Great yarn! Love the speckled colours. I cast on the Fleur shawl as soon as my yarn arrived.
Wonderful shop. Great selection. Excellent service. Lovely packaging. And speedy delivery. Will be back.
Beautiful yarn, beautifully packaged and prompt service.
This is a great product for hand washing delicate items. The company was quick and very helpful. Would shop here again.
I am really pleased with how quick this is to knit! I am already half way done the colour work of the yoke and I just started about a week ago. Normally sweaters take me what seems like forever to do. I love the Gibsons colour option I chose and I look forward to other projects from kits you offer!
I am stranding the 1ply Superwash Meriono Fingering with the Marsh Mohair both in Soot. The combination is beautiful - I am making the Melissa Scarf from Marla Mutch on Ravelry. I love the Lichen & Lace yarns! I purchased online and always receive prompt service and a lovely note from Gwen. Thank you!
I am stranding the Marsh Mohair with the 1 ply Superwash Merino fingering both in Soot. The combination creates a lovely soft fabric with depth and a subtle halo. Beautiful! I purchased online and always receive prompt service and a lovely note from Gwen. Thank you!
Very nice and helpful with a very speedy delivery to the mainland! If I get to the Island I will come in and shop!
Very nice new tool to add to my collection.
Very nice and colourful stitch markers,
First purchase from Salt Water Purls....the knitting markers are lovely, well made and will be so nice to measure progress on a WIP,
Service is top notch! As soon as I placed the order, I received an email thanking me for the order. The next day the order was shipped and it arrived 3 days later. It was like a present! Beautifully wrapped, with a hand written message and a stitch marker gift.
The yarn is beautiful.
Thank you so much!
Arrived quickly. Packed with care. The colours are fabulous and I can’t wait I start. Thank you Saltwater Purls.
I love these needles! They knit smoothly and handle nicely. The key was useful for tightening the needles to the wire; I couldn't tighten them enough by hand, but once I used the key it was fine. I got the grey denim case and really like the look and feel of it. It has a few handy little pockets and nicely displays the needles.
I specifically ordered from Saltwater Purls for their large selection of Rios yarn. After using this yarn once I just knew I needed more! This yarn is incredibly soft and smooth. My order shipped very quickly and arrived beautifully packaged with really nice personal touches. Thanks so much!
I bought a cheaper needle set first and broke one of the needles at the shank right away. I should have bought the ChiaoGoo to begin with. These are fabulous needles!
Great product and the lavender smells divine! Excellent customer service and was shipped quickly. I will shop here again!
Gorgeous colour and lovely wool. Excellent service from the shop and fast shipping!
Packed with loving care and a wee note and stitch marker made an on line purchase so personal. The parcel arrived in the blink of an eye!
Thank you so much!
I contacted the store on April 8, 2020, with some questions about the Nightshift kits they had on offer. Gwen got back to me very quickly with the information I needed, and so I ordered two kits that day (instead of the one I planned to buy). I have not received the kits yet (today is April 26), but they have to come to me in the Southeastern US from Western Canada. Given the slowdown of mail caused by the pandemic, particularly internationally, I cannot complain about it. I am sure they will get here.
I will definitely look to this store again when the need arises, and I hope to visit when I am in the Vancouver area in 2021.
I love these DPNs. They're smooth and strong, and the tips are just the right amount of sharpness. The only caution is that you have to make sure you hold the case the right way up when you open it so they don't all fall out! haha! Chaiogoo needles are definitely my favorites to work with. :)
My yarn arrived so quickly and it was packaged so beautifully! The yarn looks perfect together, and I'm happy I spent a little extra and got the mohair to go with it. I'm going to cast this on right away! Love it!
My order arrived promptly.. and they were very gracious about winding my wool at the last minute. I love the colour combination, and it is a pleasure to knit this project, My emails were returned right away,and I appreciated the hand written note and stitch marker,, Thank you again. I would not hesitate to recommend Saltwater Purls...
So thankful the size I needed was in stock. These needles are beautiful to work with. The tips are just sharp enough. My new favourite needles to work with!
Love the pouch. Purchased one for myself and one as a gift.
Lovely yarn. The colour representation was perfect. Such a great experience dealing with Gwen. I would highly recommend ordering from Saltwater Purls.
Thank you for the great service! The wool kit is beautiful. Now I need to knit the wonderful Daydreamer sweater. Can’t wait to cast on. Brends
Gorgeous rich colour and beautiful quality yarn! Appreciated the fast shipping and personal touches.
order arrived within a few days. thx
