You know how brushing your teeth is pretty much a ‘must do’ to help you avoid those nasty cavities? Well, Blendy’s NZ Yarn Sampler Box is a ‘must have’ if you want to avoid gaping holes in your fibre stash!!!
Belinda has sourced samples from two truly scrummy yarn suppliers: Touch Yarns & Fab Fibres.
Touch Yarns offer a delicious range of yarn ..‘from the finest New Zealand Merino wool ideal for knitting, weaving, embroidery, felting and embellishment of garments. All Touch Yarns and colours are designed by Marnie Kelly, inspired by the stark beauty of thyme fields, mountains and the historic goldfields of Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand’. Check out the range!
How scrummy is THAT
! Not only do they offer yarn, but also Scarf & Jumper Kits
, Hand Dyed Mohair & Merino Sliver (YUUUUMMMM!!!),
Mohair Curls (for doll making or art yarn), Bamboo Knitting Needles, a Selection of buttons, beads & threads, and Handwoven & Handknitted Garments & Rugs.
Touch Yarns are exported around the world, aswell as being snaffled up by eager NZ fibre enthusiasts. Hop over to their site!
And then there’s Fab Fibres
. One look at the divine range of fibre goodness they offer and you’ll see just why they are called ‘fab’! Their motto is “Threads with a Difference”, and just feast your eyes on this wee list:
Mixed Textural Threads

Here’s a wee taster of the Nepalese Yarn: a Rich Orange hank of silks, cottons, rayons, and banana fibres. Drooling yet?!
The most fantastic product I found on their site was the ‘Woolpaper’
– ‘Firmer and thinner than felt. Luscious handmade sheets for embroidery, needle-felting, applique or even making small bags etc’.
Ahhh, couldn’t you just eat it up?
