About Homelea Lass
Homelea Lass is about helping you to easily crochet beautiful things, and to feel good while you’re crocheting.
In your Homelea Lass kit you’ll find everything you need. There’s quality yarns and tools, and a helpful crochet pattern and online course – it’s like I’m sitting beside you, showing you what to do. You’re able to be inspired and continue improving your crochet skills with a Homelea Lass Crochet Membership.
I’m Lynda and I’m the lady behind Homelea Lass. I design and hand make each kit, pattern and online course in my studio on a remote cattle property near Quilpie in south-west Queensland.
All of the Homelea Lass merino wool yarns are fully grown and processed in Australia without overseas processing.
They’re uniquely made so what you’ll make will look good for a long time, and it won’t cover you or your home in fluff.
As a farmer and maker I want Homelea Lass to support Australian farmers and small businesses. I’m conscious of using high quality, sustainable and ethical materials and tools because I believe that the energy of everything and everyone in the making process lives on in the finished product.

About Lynda Rennick
Hi! I’m Lynda (she/her)and I’m the lady behind Homelea Lass.
I’m here to help you improve your crochet skills and to help you find peace and happiness in your creative time.
In 2012 I was knocked down by debilitating chronic fatigue that put an end to my blossoming career as a Civil Engineer and Project Manager.
Early on in my illness, I discovered that I could crochet without draining my energy, so I spent my days crocheting, researching yarns and designing – this is how Homelea Lass was born.
My experience with chronic illness has guided me to combine my passion for exceptional design and crochet. I’ve developed a way of crocheting that’s easy to understand, and maximises it’s relaxing and wellbeing properties.
As my healing journey has progressed, Homelea Lass has grown, and I feel blessed that I can share my love of Australian merino wool, chunky crochet and creativity with you.

My experiences with Lynda was just delightful. I first purchased a blanket to make via class and then bought a ready-made gift to send to the USA. Lynda was quick to whip up a beautiful Grounded Cowl and get it sent on its way only to be received with much joy. Cant recommend Lynda enough just a wonderful experience. xxx

Hi Lynda, Buying wool off you was a nice experience; and I am very happy with my chunky gorgeous blanket that results.
Homelea Lass have such beautiful items and patterns. I absolutely love the gorgeous thick squishy yarn and will be a return customer for a long time (I need every pattern and every colour of this stunning yarn). The chunky wooden crochet hooks are such a delight to use and the customer service is exceptional.
Easy to order online. Product is lovely.
I have purchased needles, books and different types of wool from Lynda over the past 12 months she is completely lovely to deal with, prompt with fabulous quality products all beautifully presented. She is accommodating and her Auctions fun! Thanks so much Lynda.
