The Polwarth Project

Tops now available :)

I am pleased to that I have another bale of beautiful Wirreanda polwarth from Mt Crawford here in the Adelaide Hills on it's way to 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. Also this time I will be having some blended with silk, quite excited about this :)


I now have my new beautiful Wirreanda polwarth and the silk blend as well which is divine. Now dyeing up some so keep a lookout on What's New
