I’m back from Wool Gathering absolutely filled to the brim with happy vibes, positive energy and laughter. Karen has created a truly amazing retreat and if you are able to go next year, go!

This week I’ve attempted to include a couple of video snippets too. They’re not perfect but I hope you get a feel of Nick & Isabell from Great Ocean Road Mill and Tom from Tarndie. I was so inspired by the work that Tarndie and Great Ocean Road Mill are doing towards more sustainable farming and yarn production and I hope to be able to bring you more news of what they’re up to soon.

I spoke to Karen last year, she’s a wonderful woman and she has created such a fantastic retreat:

Check out all the gorgeous yarn that Tarndie created. Their stunning Polwarth comes in fingering and DK weights and a lovely range of natural and dyed colours. Briony Singleton developed a range of colours that echo the history and beauty of Tarndie – it’s hard to choose which is my favourite! I think you’ll love this beautiful short video from Tarndie about their Origins yarn :)

My new Piper cardigan uses Tarndie Origins DK

Maycroft shawl uses both Tarndie Polwarth fingering and Origins 4ply yarn.

Check out all about Tarndie here. You can shop online and also stay there!


I am so inspired by Nick and Isabel and their work at Great Ocean Road Mill. They have a passion and determination to create beautiful, sustainable yarn that shines through in their yarn. It’s truly stunning.

I’ll twist their arm to come back on the podcast for a chat. In the meantime, you can buy their beautiful yarn online here.


Fancy trying some of the newly released Eva yarn developed by Tom, Nick & Isabel? It’s gorgeous and would be beautiful for a warm wrap or cosy sweater. You can buy it online now at Great Ocean Road Mill.

See you soon!
