At Canadian Frost we are all about family. It started with fibre arts as my creative outlet. Once I had outfitted everyone around me with toques I began selling at local markets. This was a lovely little side hustle and quite a change 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 my little business into Canadian Frost.
My husband and I live in Vernon, BC and have a 5 year old girl, two busy awesome little boys (7 & 9) and I am a steppie to a sweet & funny 16 year old daughter. My hubby rolls with my obsessions, doesn't complain too much about my fabric & fibre expenditures and he is kind of my errand boy.
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, fabric & yarn 100% of the time. And I love everything about it! ❤️
The hand knits and sewn products are handmade by myself. We also work with small Canadian factories that help us keep up with demand making our trucker hats & machine knit toques that we design. And we also work with local straw hat makers who design in Canada and ethically outsource high quality products.
All our products are made from fabrics and fibres that we have fallen in love with and want to share with you, such as Merino Wool or Cashmere. Everything is ethically crafted to the highest standards for versatility, longevity, comfort and beauty.
