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.
There are 3 different ways to access the Homelea Lass crochet patterns and video tutorials, and we’ve put together a detailed blog post about this here.
All of our kits are made in our studio that is located in Ballarat, in regional Victoria, Australia.

The merino wool used in our chunky yarns is fully grown and processed in Australia.
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.
A 300g skein of Homelea Bliss will make a chunky scarf or snood, and 6 hearts.

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 skeins to crochet a “snuggle on the lounge” throw, and you can find out more here.
The dyes that are used in our yarns are synthetic pigment dyes. The strongest chemical that is used is acetic acid (white vinegar contains this) and it’s made from grapes.
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, and it’s most likely that the wool is from some mulesed and some non-mulesed sheep.
