We are very pleased with our yarn collection. Nothing is accidental, as we did do a lot of research before opening our shop and purchasing yarns to ensure a variety that appeals to many people, and we offer price points that can be afforded by all – something for everyone. Our collection includes all types of fibres, price points and plys, and bought with an awareness of meterage, to ensure value. To be applicable to you, we have to consider a wide range of customer, who do a wide range of project types and who will need a range of yarns to suit their personal needs.
We looked and looked for what we felt was the best of the type of yarn, which for us has to pass the “feel” test, as well as the look test, and of a quality. We prefer local where-ever possible so we source from Australian and NZ Yarns, and then search the world. We aim to be colour conscious – and annually consult the Pantone colour of the year, as a place to start our consideration of forthcoming fashion trends. We choose to hold onto previous years colours where-ever possible, and offer a wide variety of each colour for different shades are suitable to different people. And everyone has ‘their’ favourite colour, shade and tones.
Our yarns cater to Knitters, Crocheters, and to those who Macramé. We cater to the experienced and to newcomers. In just 2 short years – The Yarning Place Yarn Collection, has almost doubled in size from when we first opened (and continues to grow). We consider – Look, Feel, Fibre Content, Gauge/Ply, Weight, Value, Metreage, Care instructions and finally and equally as important we look for drape and durability in our yarns.
