We are a couple of dedicated and long-time knitters who have escaped many years of working life and raising our families in Sydney to indulge in a country life of our animals, gardening, just enjoying a country community and, of course, knitting, which has always been an important part of our lives.
Our shop, which has now been open for over eight years, allows us to immerse ourselves and share our passion for quality knitting products with others. We are committed to offering the best of the best and showcasing wonderful yarns and accessories sourced both locally and internationally. You will notice that we focus on yarns created by artists and our range includes what we consider to be the best hand dyed yarns available internationally. It's wonderful to see visitors be delighted and surprised to discover these brands in our country shop,
Additionally, we promise knitters will find many items of interest, including our custom made rosewood yarn bowls, spikes and needles, which will embellish your knitting collection as well as a range of swifts and ball winders.
We are happy that we can offer a wonderful and unanticipated experience for visitors to our "real" shop as well as present our collection of yarns online. Although we'd like to think many of our online customers will one day drop in to meet us in person. We promise you won't be disappointed if you visit us.
Our town of Rylstone is historic, charming and welcomes knitters.
