Welcome to the Rare Yarns website. We are dedicated to offering an exciting range of high quality yarns made of materials including merino wool, for NZ and international customers. The yarns you see here are made from the finest natural fibres and colours sourced from alpacas, llamas, sheep, camel and goats. Whilst much of the wool we use comes from New Zealand, we also source beautiful natural wools from Tibet, Peru and other countries. We have all our beautiful alpaca and merino knitting yarns available for purchase sorted in our ranges:
Rare Essentials : Boucle, Brushed and 8ply in our beautiful colour palette.
Rare Earth : Boucle, Brushed and 8 ply in a wide range of natural undyed alpaca colours.
Rare Endare : 4 ply yarn, 70% alpaca/20% merino, in a range of daring colours.
Rare Fire : 14 ply yarns, one in a mix of our warm tones and one featuring our cool tones.
Looking for a little inspiration, or a fresh new design to try? Our stylish, funky and contemporary patterns are available to purchase with our yarns as Knit Kits. They are designed to not only look great, but also highlight the looks and qualities of the beautiful alpaca, silk, mohair, and merino knitting yarn that we produce. Each kit contains the pattern, the yarn and the buttons or accessories, where appropriate, meaning you've got everything you need to complete a gorgeous looking garment or accessory.
