The Woollen Earth

Welcome to the delicious, luxurious world of The Woollen Earth! Sally is The Woollen Earth's designer and creator and has always been a bit lop-sided towards the creative side of her brain! It all began when her parents were turning 60 and she wanted to give them a unique gift that she had handmade and would be a treasured piece in their home. Sally had an idea to crochet them an extremely chunky, cascading throw for their newly renovated bedroom. She went about sourcing wool (which was not as easy as it sounds!) and found THE best, finest pure Australian Merino Wool. Sally has always enjoyed working with natural fibres and she absolutely loved working with the wool. People's reaction to her work was undeniable. She felt an urge to be brave and make more woollen creations and start selling at markets. Coming from a background of hand-making Wedding Dresses for 14 years, her designs naturally took a turn towards fashion and she started creating beautifully oversized statement Scarves and other unique Headwear including her "Hoodies". Sally really enjoys working big and bringing the ancient art of crochet into the modern day in a way that customers can appreciate and enjoy the world-renowned wool our country produces. It's so enjoyable seeing people's satisfaction of wearing something handmade and sustainable.
