Canadian Frost® was started in Vernon, BC with a love for creativity, and grew because of a need for close family ties.
It started out as a hobby for me, due to extra time available, and brought more happiness and calmness into my life. Once I had outfitted everyone around me with toques, I still had too many. I began selling at local markets which was a great side job and distraction from my 20 year career as an electrician. Fast forward to double shoulder surgery and becoming a wife and mama. After I healed, I faced going back to more than full-time hours, shift work and hiring a nanny for our children. We decided the best thing for our family was to grow Canadian Frost.
We have a 2 year old girl, two busy awesome little boys (4 & 6) and I am a steppie to a sweet & funny 14 year old daughter. My hubby rolls with my obsessions, doesn't complain too much about my fabric & fibre expenditures and is even my right-hand man at markets. And has also taken on the role of expert yarn pom pom maker … somewhat kicking and screaming. :)
Having this business allows me to work at something I am passionate about full time and to be with our little munchkins all day long. Of course, this makes my lap full of children and yarn for 100% of the time. And I love everything about it!
All our products are made from fabrics and fibres that we have fallen in love with and want to share with you. Everything is crafted to the highest standards for versatility, longevity, comfort and beauty.
All of our items are made here in Canada. The hand knits and sewn products are handmade by myself and our small and talented team of seamstresses, knitters & crocheters from the Okanagan Valley. They are mamas, like myself, that want to be home with their kids & grammas that love to create. We also have small Canadian factories help us keep up with demand making our handmade beanies, trucker hats & machine knit toques that we design. We love that we are able to keep our manufacturing in Canada.
All our products are Canadian made to the highest standards and supplies are sourced through Canadian companies, whenever possible. We are keeping it as Canadian as frost.
