Chocolate River Yarns & Fibres

Chocolate River Yarns & Fibres

Region: Lunenburg Region

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.

They 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.

Their stock of hand dyed and painted yarns, felting fibres, pre-felts & batts are sourced in Canada. They also stock some of the larger brand names that you see featured in Vogue Knitting and Interweave magazines, such as Sugar Bush, Ancient Arts, Kelbourne Woolens, BCGarn and Rowan.

Canadian hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind buttons and shawl pins are a must for that special project and they have them, from Nature’s Wonders in Ontario!
