A yarn this beautiful deserves beautiful designs.
Great Southern Yarn is a 100% Australian yarn. Our first range is a blend of 50% merino and 50% alpaca. The fleece is sourced from 3 NSW properties that are all ethically raising their animals and environmentally sustainable. The fleece is processed and spun at Adagio Mills in Orange, NSW. At the moment, the weights available are DK and a 4 ply, which is spun with a high twist. The yarn is soft, drapes beautifully and has both knitted and crocheted up incredibly well.
I am particularly interested in 4 ply designs and DK designs for accessories, at the moment.
The yarn is available in a range of 19 colours, including natural cream and 3 natural greys. Don’t be shy of colour, texture, lace or cables, but do keep a contemporary, fashion forward look in mind. Classic, with a modern twist is also worth exploring.
