A joint venture yarns between Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill & The Purl Box - two Australian yarn companies.

Together we’ve created a brand new yarn spun at GORWM. It’s a Polwarth wool, Linen & Suri Alpaca blend, designed to cross seasons, look beautiful & be a perfect choice for a wide range of projects.
It’s a DK / 8Ply weight, and commercially dyed at a Dyehouse local to us that uses low-environmental impact methods. It’s been dyed to take best advantage of the Plant / animal fibre nature of the yarn & thus we’ve created a beautiful heathered effect.

The yarn is available in seven shades.

It’s available for sale from both our stores online:
