Great Southern Yarn has been designed and created by Mulberry and Flax. The SRS (soft fold skin) merino is sourced from a mob of 125 sheep raised exclusively for our yarn at the Lyons family property in MT Bodangora, near Wellington, NSW. One great benefit of choosing SRS merino is that the sheep are non-mulesed. The alpaca is grown by a small collective of alpaca farmers.

Processed by Cashmere Connections and spun at Wangaratta Mills, both in Victoria and hand dyed, Great Southern Yarn is a 100% ethically and sustainably produced Australian yarn.

Our yarn produces fabulous garments from beanies and scarves to pullovers. It is a pleasure to knit with and wear as it combines the warmth and softness of alpaca with the strength and bounce of the merino.

Always check your tension before starting your project.
