|Eve with her llamas|
Hey there fibre lovers
We have had an interesting year full of challenges. The New Zealand Mill we use to make our yarns has had much inner turmoil. We are still not sure of its future. It will be sad to lose this historical Woollen Mill with it's amazing old but timeless machinery. We are crossing our fingers that we will be able to get yarn made there in 2017.
As a result, some of our yarns are running low so if you snooze, you lose.
The Tree Children Yarns rocked out the door. We hope to stock them again in the new year. We will keep you posted here.
Inspired by the gift of Eve's looms, we, Ruth & Vicki, have been learning and falling in love with the age old craft of weaving. We are weaving a range of Men's Scarves in our natural range of alpaca merino yarns as we see a niche in the market for stylish Men's accessories. Over summer we'll put up a photo of the floor loom by Ruth's beautiful pool. The saying will be, "Weave a scarf, Have a swim, drink a ....cup of tea of course."

What a fabulous versatile vest. Wear it up either way and back to front - looks good however you weat it.
Designed to knit in our Brushed 80% alpaca 20% merino knitting yarn, but also works well in our Pure Boucle. (It takes one extra ball in the Pure than the pattern states for the brushed.)
No sewing up - quick to knit. A fabulous project.
Pictured in Old Snow Brushed and in Persimmon Pure.
