What do our customers say?
“My husband gave me the Chunky Heart Crochet Kit for Mother’s Day. When I saw the gift from my husband I was delighted! I also wondered how I’d get on knowing my previous failed attempts at crocheting. However, I watched your video (quite a few times!) and followed along, pausing regularly, completing the heart and am SO SO happy with it! Thank you for making it so clear and easy to follow. I love the wool and really enjoyed using the huge hook. Very rewarding. Thank you!” Vicky

We use Australian made products whenever possible. The following items in this kit are made in Australia:

- labels, pattern and flyers
- Homelea Bliss colour sample
The other items in this kit are selected because they are high quality and can be used for a long time.
What is the yarn made from? What size is it?
Homelea Bliss is a premium Australian merino wool yarn which is fully grown and processed in Australia (no offshore processing). It is uniquely made to last – it won’t leave fluff everywhere, and it will look good after many uses.
Our yarns are as natural as possible which means you may find some vegetable matter in your wool. This is easily removed and is a beautiful connection between the sheep that grew the wool and the finished product.
Homelea Bliss merino wool yarn is a super chunky or super bulky yarn that is 1cm (0.4in) thick. Larger yarns like Homelea Bliss do not have a ply size.
What terminology is the crochet pattern in?
The included crochet pattern is written in UK and US crochet terminology, and the video uses UK terminology (with how to do each stitch explained in detail).
A crochet chart is included in the online crochet pattern.
What are the care instructions?
Cold, gentle hand wash and lie flat to dry.
