Hello! My name is Claire and I am a creative soul from Yass, Australia. I live with my High School Sweetheart hubby, Mr S, and our little cat Mingka (aka The Minky Tinky Tiger and The Cat In The Cardigan).
For the past 8+ years, I have been an avid crocheter and spinner. More than two years ago, I began a Crochet Blog (which you can find in the links below) and started selling some of my own work through eBay, Etsy and local markets. I got to a point on my 'crochet journey' where I found myself irritated with the lack of interesting and beautiful yarn available. I love arty yarns, with rich colours, sometimes spiked with silk, or alpaca, or mohair, or angora. I love the texture, look and feel of beautiful yarn.
I began to 'day dream' about opening my own boutique yarn store that focused on sourcing creative and interesting fibres, wool and yarn and included a place where I could showcase my own limited edition handspun pieces and bespoke work.
That's when the idea for this little store started to form ... and here we are!
Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the world. I hope you enjoy your shopping experience. Please feel free to drop me a line. I'd also love to see pics of your 'work in progress' projects!
Happy Yarn Days,
The Cat In The Cardigan
