New Zealand’s world renowned reputation as an exporter of superior quality wool, is undisputed. In a country where sheep outnumber people 10:1, we’ve learnt a thing or two about how to nurture and grow the world’s finest fleece.
But how do you really know, if you’re actually knitting your garments from the world’s finest fleece?
The origins of most of the knitting wool yarns
available in today’s retail stores is probably unknown and of varying quality. This makes it difficult for you, the knitter and spinner, to confidently source the best quality and right type of knitting yarn
for your project.
At Briar Patch, we understand that NOT ALL knitting wool yarn is created equal - different breeds of animal produce wool for different purposes. How do we know this? Because we grow it.
We’re New Zealand’s direct knitting wool suppliers
to the world’s fussiest knitters and hand spinners.

with us. Not sure which is the best yarn for your project? Contact us
