ABOUT KAALUND YARNS
A BRIEF HISTORY OF WHO WE ARE
Kaalund Yarns is a family run boutique fibre mill in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland, South East Queensland, Australia. In 1997 we started hand dyeing embroidery yarns, with a kitchen steamer, progressing to hand spinning, artisan dyeing knitting yarns and hand weaving accessories. These days with commercial machinery we just produce more, faster, with the same ideals. Soft natural fibres and traditional hand dyeing are still the basis for what makes our products great.
ABOUT OUR YARNS AND FIBRE PRODUCTS
We love the look of hand spun yarn with its undulations and nuances, so we have set about creating mill spun yarn from hand dyed fibre that embraces this traditional concept, with every skein unique. Some of our products are fulled singles with a thick and thin look, some are plied and others are just crazy, gorgeous art yarn waiting to be snatched up and knitted. All of our yarns can be used for knitting, crocheting, weaving or textile art and our fibre products such as rovings or batts can be felted or hand spun.
What we do!
01 Select our Fibre
Beautiful soft natural fibres such as wool, alpaca and silk
02 Hand Dyeing
Using the slow, traditional technique of kettle dyeing the natural fibres thoroughly absorb the dye. We only use environmentally responsible dyes.
03 Mill Processing
Firstly the fleece is scoured, then picked and carded on our machines and then spun into yarn ready to be knitted or processed into fibre batts or rovings for hand spinners or felters.
