Summer can be sunny and warm, beckoning us outdoors for our recreation. This year has been a little different with the COVID-19 pandemic, however, limiting our outdoor pastimes and keeping us a cooped up inside. Even if we are free to rejoin our open-air recreational groups, there will be rainy days this summer. So, now might a good time to consider taking up an indoor hobby.
Bare Naked Wools may be one of the most unique businesses in Stark County. Located at 211 15th Street NW in Canton, it is wholly dedicated to the use of natural yarns for creating woolen, hand-knitted clothing and accessories.
Bare Naked Wools Boutique offers various types of natural, chemical- and dye-free yarn. Knitters also can buy patterns designed by owner Anne Hanson to guide them in their knit creations. Every Wednesday, Bare Naked Wools hosts an open-to-the-public knit night.
