The Australian Yarn Company is passionate about making and sharing joy through crafts. We develop and manufacture our Australian made yarns at our Bendigo and Wangaratta mills in regional Victoria.
With decades of experience, our team have the unique ability to work directly with Aussie farmers and our local wool brokers. This ensures the highest quality wool and alpaca are sourced to go into our locally made products.
Skilled spinners, dyers and machine technicians bring our products to life. Each ball of yarn is carefully nurtured from fibre through to retail distribution. The commitment and care that is necessary for each and every step means they don’t rush.
Our design team are makers, just like you. We knit, we crochet and we create. We are part of online communities, we knit for charity and share our creations with our loved ones. We offer designs that are inspired by global fashion trends but tailored to the needs and aspirations of our customers. Every pattern is purposefully designed and precisely written, then tested by our dedicated knitters and crochet workers. Our experience allows you to make with ease, knowing that you are getting the best!
Internationally supplied products enhance our range to bring the newest innovation and colour technology to Australian makers. We work with accredited mills in Europe and Asia who are leading the way in new environmental standards across the industry.
The Australian Yarn Company brands include Heirloom, Patons, Cleckheaton, Shepherd and Panda. We are a wholesale business, working closely with our 800 dedicated, independent retailers across Australia and New Zealand to share our product with you.
