Hi, I’m Helene, owner and indie dyer behind all the yarn that you can find at Happy-go-knitty.
There’s so much exciting happening in the wool world here in the Southern hemisphere and some of the yarn bases that I use are produced in small mills in New Zealand – merino-cross, polwarth, alpaca and possum are the main fibres. They are woolly, pure and non superwash treated.
Yarn blends that are not produced here downunder, I source from other parts of the world. They are more exotic ones like yak, silk, linen and mohair. Luxury and lovely in there own kind of way.
I have also added some other things that I like and use myself – ChiaoGoo needles, because they are just the best; leather Wrist Rulers; funky accessories from JUL Designs; upcycled shawl cuffs from JamKnit and handy tools like DualGauges, Merchant & Mills scissors and stitchmarkers.
