About Us

A 20 year vision and passion is now manifesting into a reality!

The key benefit to you, is that you are able to visit a specialty store, and be able to physically inspect the product before buying.  You will have access to a friendly, knowledgeable entrepreneur in the craft, who can offer assistance with a variety of your fiber projects.

Angele Francoeur has been an avid knitter, spinner and weaver. Her journey began 20 years ago, and she always said “when I win the lottery, Ill open my own little fibre artist shop”

No, we haven’t won the lottery, however, the opportunity presented itself with the closure of Michael’s craft store, and Yarns and such in the TImmins area. Angele, wth the support and help from her Husband, and friends and family, has launched


The Northern Purl is born out of love for all things fibre craft related. We will be providing knitters, spinners, and weavers around the Timmins area the tools and supplies they need to better their craft, as well as a comfortable place to gather to explore other aspects of wool and fibre processing.
