I’m Elisha, I started Natural Yarn Co with my Mum Kathryn in 2022. What started out as a mission to dye beautiful natural fibres to knit and crochet for my newborn son, ended up being the perfect postpartum addiction! Initially mum was on babysitting and knitting/ crochet sample duties but after having a go at dyeing she became addicted too! Neither of us can stay away from the dye pans for more than a couple of days.
I have a background in fashion design and production and mum is a semi-retired Assistant Principal. I recently moved from the outskirts of Sydney on Dharawal land to the picturesque Hilltops Region in rural NSW. We are so lucky to live on a beautiful patch of land with a few sheep and Alpacas. We love this incredible country we live in and you’ll find many of our colours are inspired by the flora, fauna and places we love!
We often get mistaken for sisters (despite a 27 year age gap). I like to think this is because we are glued at the hip and we often finish each others sentences.
We love meeting fellow makers at our market stalls and pop up shops and exchanging inspiration. We hope to meet many more of you over the course of this year at various fibre events! Check out the events/ markets page on our website for all the details.
