The 2019 Homelea Lass Colour Range is here!

Categories: Chunky Crochet, Chunky Knitting, Chunky Yarn, Homelea Lass Happenings

You may have seen a sneak peek in my Instagram stories, and I am thrilled to announce that my complete 2019 colour range is here!

These colours are all dreamed up by me with the hopes that you will love them as much as I have loved creating them. I simply cannot wait to see what you make with these earthy, wholesome and organic tones.

These gorgeous colours spark feelings of vibrant warmth, and long fireside chats. Each one is inspired by the natural world that surrounds us.

Each colour harmonises with the other, and there’s a balance between vibrant colours to brighten your day, and neutral hues to meld into your world. Let’s explore all of them, and discover your favourite.

Each colour is available in the 300g Homelea Bliss skeins, or 100g Homelea Bliss mini skeins for a pop of colour.


Rhubarb – new!
Rhubarb is the perfect balance between red and pink. Its ruby hues warm my heart and I feel an inner power and motivation whenever I wear this colour.


Cumin – new!
Cumin is a gentle giant, which is full of confidence! It’s best friends with navy and grey, and it’s vibrancy is soothing to the soul. I just want to snuggle up on the lounge with a big chunky blanket made in cumin.


Rooted deeply in the natural world, Olive is grounded and brings spring into winter. It looks good with everything.


Mushroom has worked it’s way into my heart. It wraps me in love and tells me that it’s all going to be okay, that I can do everything I dream.


Oatmeal is the unassuming beauty. Her blush tones meld beautifully with Rhubarb and Donkey. This is the colour I reach for when I want a neutral that’s more than neutral.


The warmth of this grey-brown is comforting. It’s gentle, loving and protective, and wants to share these feelings with you.


Unassuming and glowing, this undyed colour is merino wool at it’s best. This neutral looks good with everything, and is a popular choice.


Navy is the winter colour I reach for instead of black. It’s classic beauty builds confidence and power.


Oh grey, how I love you. I could wear you every day and never grow tired of your modern elegance.


Steele Blue
This greyish-blue has become a classic Homelea Lass colour, and it sells out all the time! This heartfelt colour loves long walks on the beach, and stopping for coffee to take in the view.

Steele Blue Homelea Bliss 300g Chunky Yarn Australian Merino Wool | Homelea Lass

    Hi Lynda, I love the Cumin colour! Perfect for autumn winter and I’d make a baby blanket for my babe due any day now!

  6. Brooke says:

    Donkey to make a throw so I can snuggle up with my newborn bub this winter!

  7. Veronika says:

    Natural…….. because it is the base of everything in my wardrobe/home and I make the things I use all year round in it. That way it is easy to add seasonal colour as it suits my mood. I have been tossing round the idea of a chunky blanket but haven’t really seen any yarn that I believe, would hold up to the task. The construction of your yarn gives me hope and winning a skein would be the nicest way to find out. Thank you for doing a give away.
