About Homelea Lass
Homelea Lass helps busy people make beautiful things.
I know you’re busy. You spend all day running around, going from one thing to another. There’s a lot going on and your mind is always full.
Your days are full and happy, but there’s not much time for you.
You long to make.
To use your hands to bring beauty into the world. You’ve tried, but it takes too long and you never seem to be able to make the picture in your head. The instructions are hard to follow and you just don’t have time to go to a crochet workshop.
Homelea Lass is here to help you.
To use your limited time wisely and easily crochet beautiful blankets. Blankets that will be loved and used for many, many years. To relax with each stitch, and see beauty come to life in front of you.
The comprehensive online classes with detailed video tutorials mean the crochet designer is showing you exactly what to do. The kits are filled with soft Australian Merino wool and quality tools that will have you wanting to keep making, even once you’ve finished. You’ll relax into the motions of the stitches and you’ll understand exactly why this is “calm crochet”.
All Homelea Lass orders are shipped from our studio in Ballarat, Victoria.
About Lynda Rennick
Hi, I’m Lynda! I’m a chunky crochet designer and teacher and I’m based in Ballarat, Australia.
I’m passionate about effortless design and crocheting easily.
I know you’re busy and want to spend your time relaxing and making beautiful things, not fumbling around with instructions you don’t understand and making things that look “okay”.
I discovered the healing and relaxing powers of crochet after I was knocked down by chronic fatigue in 2012. Crochet helped me to escape to my happy place and rebuild my life.
As an Australian farmer and maker, I’m passionate about supporting other Australian farmers and makers. For this reason, our merino wool is 100% Australian grown and processed. This is rare – most Australian yarns are partially processed overseas.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HOMELEA LASS
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.
