Our online shop has relocated!

If you’re after a spot of online shopping, your best bet is to skip over to¬†Holland Road Yarn Company’s website. There you’ll find everything you’re looking for (and maybe a little bit more!)


We have rather a lot of Knitsch Sock in stock right now. You’ll have to buy it all as we can’t fit it on the shelves!

First Dibs! A Yarn Club

Goodness, what’s this?! Another yarn club? Am I mad?

Yes, quite possibly.

This one is a little different from the others, though.

Yarn Club on sale 10am Friday 8 February

The details:

Strictly limited to 20 places

Purchasing a place will cost NZ $54 plus shipping ($4 NZ, $7 Australia, $10 ROW)

What you get:

4 x Knitsch Sock 100% merino 4ply

One week prior to shipping, you will receive an email containing images of brand new Knitsch Sock colourways. From these, you can select as many or as few skeins of each colour as you wish.

If your yarn selection total is more than 4 x 50g skeins, we will email your final cost for payment prior to dispatch.

Yarn will be shipped all in one parcel on 4 March, 2013

As usual, your parcel will contain sweet treats!

Lucky place-getters will not only see the brand colours before anyone else, you will touch them too! New colours will be launched at Unwind Retreat in Dunedin on 8 March, and won’t be online until the week following.

Simple, simple, easy peasy!

Knitsch at Craft2.0: 30 June

It’s super duper exciting to be able to announce that more yarn base has arrived! Hooray!

This not only means more stock, but also brand new colourways – which is our favourite kind of re-stocking.

If you’d like to be one of the first to get your hands on the shiny new yarn colours, they will first see the light of day at…. Craft2.0!

That’s right, we’re back to our old stomping ground of Craft2.0. It’s been our favourite market to be involved with since forever, so what better way to celebrate winter, and shiny happy colours, than to have a rocking fun day with our fellow crafters.

In case you didn’t know, Craft2.0 now lives in the city – located in the beautiful big open airy space that is the Chaffers Dock Building, next to Waitangi Park, a hop skip and jump from Te Papa and Oriental Bay.

The deets:
10am – 3pm
Saturday June 30
Chaffer’s Dock Building
1 Herd St, Wellington

Should our yarn behave, we’ll share some sneaky peeks of new colours next week…and they will be loaded in the online shop during the week following Craft2.0. Hooray!

Knitsch in the ‘Naki

Hip hip hooray!

I’m off to do my very first trunk show, and it’s on Monday! What better excuse to say hello to my old mountain than to pack the car with yarn and goodies and drive up to my old hometown.

Here’s the deets:

Knitsch Trunk Show

Monday 11 June 7pm – 9pm & Tuesday 12 June 10am – 3pm
Still Quilting and Knitting
228 Devon St East
New Plymouth

It’s going to be a blast! Knitsch Yarns has been stocked here for a bit over 6 months and we can’t send them yarn fast enough…hence the road trip. I’m pretty excited to see the inside of the store I send so much yarn to…and meeting local knitters. See you there! xx
