Autumn News

 

My favorite season has arrived, the weather is cooler with fine days and crisp nights, and I’m inspired to forage in my wool stash to start planning the winter projects! 

 

NEWS FLASH!

We are now stocking a new range of dyed 22 micron Merino tops from Ashford! This lovely fibre is great for spinning or felt-making and with over 60 colours available the choice is unlimited. 

Another new product is a textured cotton also from Ashford, this interesting yarn is available in four colour combinations and can be combined with the mercerized cottons. (It’s called Caterpillar yarn but don’t worry, no caterpillars were harmed during manufacture!) 

Another new product we hope to have in stock soon is a natural Merino range of sliver and five ply yarn grown and fully processed in Australia. This fibre is a soft 18 micron merino and the yarn is beautifully spun with a good twist so ideal for knitting or weaving. 

After 25 years of travelling to trading venues all over Australia, we have reluctantly decided to hang up our car keys to concentrate on our online and mail order business! Bob and I will miss seeing all our loyal customers and friends at these events so please call in for a visit if you are travelling down the South Coast. 

We will still be trading at two events, the Celebration of Wool weekend in Canberra in May and the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo during July. 

We are listing new customers daily via our website and online shop but please remember that we also welcome personal visits to our attractive display area in Gerringong NSW - and are very happy to assist with any textile queries!
