FAQs – answering your questions

crochet patterns and kits

  • Which kit is the best one to learn to crochet with?

    The Chunky Scarf Crochet Kit is ideal for learning to crochet – the videos assume that you’ve never crocheted before, and you’ll learn the basic crochet stitches and techniques.

    If you’re feeling adventurous, then start with the Chunky Heart Crochet Kit – the stitches are more complex, and the videos will show you exactly what to do.

  • How do I access the crochet patterns and video tutorials?

    There are a few ways to access the Homelea Lass crochet patterns and video tutorials, and we’ve put together a detailed blog post about this here.

  • Where are the crochet kits made?

    All of the Homelea Lass kits are made in on our remote cattle property near Quilpie in South West Queensland.

  • How much does shipping cost?

    Shipping is free for orders over $50, and is $5 for orders under $50 delivered in Australia. Express shipping within Australia is $9. Find out more about international deliveries here.

  • Where are the online orders sent from?

    I love receiving your orders (thank you), and I pack each order in the Homelea Lass studio which is on a remote cattle property in South West Queensland. Your orders are sent when we travel about 2 hours to the Quilpie or Charleville post office at least once a week. Find out more about shipping here.

  • Do you use sustainable packaging?

    I use recycled and compostable packaging materials whenever possible, minimising the amount of packaging you’ll need to throw out whenever possible.

  • Can I pick up my order?

    This isn’t possible due to the remote location of the Homelea Lass studio.

 

merino wool yarns – 10ply and super chunky

  • Where is the wool grown and processed?

    The merino wool used in the Homelea Lass yarns is fully grown and processed in Australia, and the Homelea Bliss super chunky and Homelea Happy 10ply yarns are certified as Australian Made.

  • What type of dye is used on your yarn?

    The dyes that are used in the Homelea Lass yarns are synthetic pigment dyes. The strongest chemical that is used is acetic acid (white vinegar contains this) and it’s made from grapes.

  • Is the wool from non-mulesed sheep?

    As well as being fully produced in Australia, our yarns are grown in Australia from merino sheep. We can not guarantee that the wool is 100% from non-mulesed sheep.

  • What ply is Homelea Bliss?

    Due to it’s size, Homelea Bliss does not have a ply size. It is classed as a super chunky / super bulky / jumbo yarn size, and it is close to 1cm (0.4in) in thickness.

  • What ply is Homelea Happy?

 

  • What can I make with a 300g skein of Homelea Bliss?

    A 300g skein of Homelea Bliss will make a chunky scarf or snood, and 6 hearts. Find out more here.

  • How much super chunky yarn do I need to make a blanket?

    The amount of yarn you’ll need to make a throw or blanket depends on a number of factors, including the blanket size, crochet/knitting, stitch type and hook/needle size. As a guide we allow 6 x 300g skeins of Homelea Bliss to crochet a “snuggle on the lounge” throw, and you can find out more here.
