It’s the kind of story on which we always fall by chance. Ours begins in the Saint-Roch neighborhood of Quebec City, where a young documentary filmmaker is working on yarn bombing, a textile variant of street art that involves wrapping or embellishing street furniture with wool knittings. While investigating the practice, she gets entangled in the stories of Marjolaine, Alexandra and Marie, three old ladies who, with Zina, their missing friend, founded a yarn bombing collective in their twenties, at the beginning of the 21st century... Both soft and rough, like a sweater knitted by your grandmother, Petite laine is a story woven with memories and lies, tainted by the commitment and naivety of youth.
