Our philosophy

Rare Yarns comes from the simple idea that people are passionate about yarns that are beautiful, out of the ordinary and lovely to touch.

The Rare Yarns Company use the finest natural fibres and colours of alpaca, llamas, sheep, camel and goats from New Zealand, Tibet, Peru and many other places to create beautiful natural yarns.

Our commitment is to preserve the diversity of rare breeds, rare colours and rare yarns.

We support farming and breeding practices that are environmentally responsible, humane and contribute and contribute to the sustainable futures of indigenous peoples and their lands.

We are particularly proud of our dye free alpaca range - Rare Earth. CLICK HERE Our dyed ranges feature contemporary colours with both a warm and a cool palette. CLICK HERE

Our unique yarns provide subtle shifts of texture and colours. They are light to wear, gloriously soft to touch and exceptionally warm. Rare Yarns works well with our simple, elegant and sometimes funky, patterns, many of which are designed by Melbourne Textile Fashion Designer - Zoe Bradshaw.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to providing you with a range of products and services that exceed your expectations.

Regards from all of us at Rare Yarns
