About

Hello! Welcome to Extra Lime, my name is Geneviève and I live in Québec, Canada. 

I’m really excited to finally open my first store! It’s been a dream of mine for a few years now. There is not many types of work I can do with my chronic illness, but an online shop seems like a great idea considering that I love to knit little things.

My first language is French, but I decided to use English to broaden my audience considering I will be shipping to Canada and the United States. I would like to make my shop bilingual in the future, that’s why I tried hard to find a cute bilingual name: Extra Lime!

I hope you have a great time shopping here! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have at contact@extralime.ca.

Material

All new material I buy will always be 100% biodegradable.

I try to avoid buying new synthetic fibres and prefer to buy 100% natural fibres that will completely biodegrade at the end of its life. That’s why all my creations are stuffed with wool. All listed synthetic yarn is second-hand yarn that comes from my mother and has been purchased between the 70s and the 90s. All listed unknown second-hand yarn also comes from my mother but the label has been lost.

All items are made in a house free from cigarette smoke, pets and perfume. All second-hand yarn has always been stored in a house free from cigarette smoke and pets.
