Winter News


Winter has arrived with a blast this year, we had swimming weather last week and now it feels like the North Pole! It's definitely time to wrap ourselves in wool and enjoy the longer evenings by the fire spinning, weaving, knitting or felting to create gorgeous textiles.


See our Stocktake Specials below!



We are now stocking the dyed 22 micron Merino tops from Ashford. This lovely fibre is great for spinning or felting and with over 60 colours available the choice is unlimited, just check out the sample card on our website.

We also have two exciting new cotton yarns, there is a textured yarn in six vibrant colour combinations which can be woven with both of the Ashford mercerized cottons. (It's called Caterpillar yarn but don't worry, no caterpillars were harmed during manufacture!)

Yoga yarn (for relaxing weaving) is another new 8/2 cotton from Ashford, it's a core spun and lightweight yarn, available in 18 glorious colours to compliment the 5/2 and 10/2 range - ask for a free sample card with your next order.

Another new product now in stock is the natural Merino sliver grown and fully processed in Australia, this superfine fibre is 18 micron and so soft! There are three shades available, cream, charcoal grey and a dark brown, all priced at just $35.50 per 500g.


Australian Sheep and Wool Show

The highlight of every wool lover's calendar is the Australian Sheep and Wool Show held at Bendigo in July. This major event has entertainment for the whole family with hundreds of traders, fashion parades, wool-craft exhibition, demonstrations, shearing competition and of course, sheep, sheep and more sheep!


Our stand is in the Osborne Pavilion opposite the main entrance so come along and check out our special deals and free shipping on all Ashford wheels, looms and drum carders.  More Show information here www.sheepshow.com.

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, it would be great to see you.

We will still be trading at two events:

1) The Celebration of Wool weekend in Canberra in May

2) The Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo in July
