about the yarn
Homelea Hug is a jumbo merino wool yarn that is soft and squishy, and it feels lovely against your skin. This special yarn is fully grown and processed in Australia with no overseas processing (it’s uncommon for an Australian wool yarn to not have some overseas processing).
The wool in Homelea Hug is felted which means that what you make will be an heirloom that you will use for many, many years. It will keep its good looks for a long time, it won’t cover your home, or you, in fluff and will only pill slightly after repeated use.
Homelea Bliss is about 2cm / 0.8in thick.
made in Australia
I make all of the Homelea Lass kits by hand in the Homelea Lass studio. It’s located on a remote cattle property near Quilpie in south west Queensland, Australia. I use Australian made components whenever possible.
I know you’re going to love arm crocheting your Hug Blanket!
With love, Lynda.
