Yarnologie Volume 3 2022 (Print)
What's it all about?
Australian-owned and made, Yarnologie is The Journal for knitters, crocheters and yarn lovers.
Yarnologie has always been about supporting our local yarn industry, giving a voice to Australia and New Zealand and tying in with our unique southern hemisphere seasons.
From fibre growers to mills, designers and makers - it’s been an honour and a delight to share the stories of the people who grow, make and create with yarn and we're so excited to continue doing so in print.
Alongside our interviews and stories, we include articles that educate and tutorials for both knitting and crochet.
Volume 3 Features
128 delicious pages packed with yarny goodness.
