Where is the kit made?
This kit is made by hand in our Geelong studio in Victoria, Australia.
I use Australian made products whenever possible. The following items in this kit are made in Australia:
- premium merino wool yarn which is fully grown and processed in Australia (no offshore processing)
- 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.
The pattern is able to be viewed online, or downloaded and printed.
What are the care instructions?
Cold, gentle hand wash and lie flat to dry.
