About us

Hi, I'm Melissa, dyer at Alley Cat Yarns!

I am a knitter, mom, cyclist, musician, triathlete, gardener, cat lover, and more. I come from a family of artists and musicians, and am so lucky that my extended family showed me the knitting ropes many years ago.

I often struggled to find just the right yarn for my projects, and so decided to use my creative talents to create exactly what I am passionate about: Colour-rich and wearable yarns in luxury fibres.

Alley Cat's collections include yarns from a variety of cruelty-free sources, and we work hard to choose local and Canadian where possible for all of our business needs.
