About Homelea Lass
Hi! I’m Lynda and welcome to Homelea Lass.
Homelea Lass is about encouraging, inspiring and helping you to create a happy life through chunky crochet.
I love designing chunky blankets and scarfs, and Homelea Lass has a beautiful range of easy-to-follow crochet kits, “made for you” items, crochet patterns and chunky merino wool yarns. I hand make each kit and “made for you” product in my Melbourne studio.
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.
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.
Have you heard of Blanket School? It’s my online blanket courses and mindful crochet community and we’d love for you to join us.
About Lynda Rennick
Hi! I’m Lynda and I’m the lady behind Homelea Lass.
I’m a Chunky Crochet Goddess. I utilize my skills as an intuitive, an empath, a creative and a lover of essential oils to help busy people find peace and happiness through creativity and chunky crochet.
In 2012 I was knocked down by debilitating and 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 then blogging about it – this is how Homelea Lass was born.
During many, many hours of crocheting, I discovered that crocheting with chunky yarns made from natural fibres made me feel peaceful and happy. I also rediscovered who I really was and I’ve found healing through creativity, energy healing and essential oils.
Crochet helped me to find myself, step into my power and rebuild my life from the deepest despair of chronic fatigue, from the absolute lowest point in my life where I didn’t know if I would ever live a “normal” life ever again.
I created Homelea Lass so that you can create your happy life, just like I did.

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.
