Come on in for a browse.

The Polwarth Project

Tops now available :)

I am pleased to announce my new venture. I have been to Wirreanda at Mt Crawford here in the Adelaide Hills and selected the finest Polwarth fleeces which will be sent to Victoria for scouring and top making. Then I will be able to offer you the most beautiful Polwarth tops dyed and undyed, knowing their origin is only a few kms from my door.

If you wish to follow along with this journey please pop over to my Ravelry group and check out The Polwarth Project thread.



Yarn Magazine; Issue 46-Winter

I am pleased to announce that I have an article and pattern in the latest issue of Yarn and my project has even made the front cover in a colour altered version. Please get yourself a copy and have a read as I am very proud of being in print :)

About Postage

 Now Open my new At Home Shop/Studio

I will be open by appointment so please give me a ring on 08 8389 6417 and we can arrange a time that suits.

OPEN STUDIO : The second Wednesday of the month I have an open studio where you are welcome to come along any time between 10am and 3pm to visit. Bring along your knitting, spinning or whatever you are working on and join us. I will provide tea and coffee but bring your lunch.

The next one is Wednesday 11th December. Hope to see you there :-)

I will still have my fibre and yarn goodness at Camellia Cottage in Hanhdorf so nothing has changed there.

I am getting the store well stocked now and will be adding more as time goes by so come back often to see what is new or back in stock.

I welcome feedback so please contact me if you have anything to share.

Please check here regularly as I will let you know of any outings and events.

Have a great visit and please come back soon :)
