Artisan Hand Dyed Yarn from Australia

Our collection of hand-dyed yarn is a thoughtfully curated assortment of
luxurious yarn bases in a variety of beautiful colors and dyeing techniques. Our yarns are sourced ethically, with the majority being from Australian-grown wool and fibers from farms that have adopted alternative methods to the controversial practice of mulesing. We also source some unique fibers, such as Yak and Cashmere from a mill that supports a small farming cooperative in South America.

With over 15 years of experience in dyeing, we have received accreditation from both Woolmark Australia and the textiles School of Sweet Georgia to ensure you receive the highest quality. To promote health and sustainable practices, we use organic Greener Shades dyes.

  • Wool in a Circular Economy - Slow Clothing

    No other fibre, natural or man-made, can match all of wool’s naturally inherent benefits.

  • Reduce waste and pollution

    Wool uses 18% less energy than polyester and nearly 70% less water than cotton to produce 100 sweaters.

  • The most reused and recycled fibre in the world

    Natural, renewable and biodegradable, wool is the most reused and recyclable fibre on the planet of the major apparel fibres.
