The knitting community spans far and wide.

From knitting groups to wool shops, from yarn bombing to good causes and from fashion to lifelong friendships – knitting has the power to inspire us in many ways.

While we are proud to distribute quality yarn to independent wool shops in Australia and New Zealand, we recognise the importance of the wider community involved in knitting and crochet.

Through this page we plan to share more information on about the knitting and yarn community in Australia and New Zealand.
