Maker Mondays- Adelaide Hills Yarn Co.




Welcome to this Monday's instalment of the blog series -

Today's Makers are a little different, Adelaide Hills Yarn Company.


Please introduce yourself, and tell us what your business?


We are Diana and Amanda, two friends who met whilst working together and developed a love for crocheting and using chunky yarns. We decided to start our own on line T shirt yarn store to make the products more accessible to Australian crafters. Our products are used by crocheters, knitters, weavers and macramé artists. 
.  


How long have you been established?

We officially opened Adelaide Hills Yarn Co in June last year (2016), so not even 12 months yet. We have been delighted with the response that we received to our yarns, and can hardly believe how far we have come in such a short time. We have since added other 
products other than T shirt yarn.


Do you start with ideas or materials?

We started our business with just an idea. We had the materials in mind, and months were spent sourcing what we wanted



How relevant is social media to you?

Extremely. It is the foundation of our business really. We have built our business from nothing using Instagram and Facebook alone.



Anything else to add? 


Our products are made from factory offcuts from the textile industry that would otherwise go into landfill. We are pleased to be able to make a difference, no matter how small. 



My Textured Clutch pattern uses Adelaide Hills ribbon and rope yarn. You can find the pattern here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/textured-clutch-pair
