About

 

Tracy Henwood, the owner of Knit Spin Weave is a passionate fibre artist, skilled in knitting, crochet, dyeing, spinning and weaving. She dreamed of establishing a yarn shop that supplies materials and equipment for those who have a love of yarn and fibre.

Tracy has a desire to create a place, a community where those with the interest and desire to connect with like minded individuals can come and meet, share ideas and learn from each other in a friendly, fun environment that reflects the communal spirit of days gone by.

Her love of fine yarns and fibres has lead her to seek some of best natural fibre yarns from Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the world, so people can come and see and feel the yarn before committing to purchase.

A desire to be a little kinder to the planet sees Knit Spin Weave stocking overwhelmingly natural fibre yarns. As our oceans groan under the deluge of plastics waste, choosing natural fibre clothing is a sensible ecological and environmental choice, we as individuals can make.

For the spinning community locally grown fleeces are in-store as well as spinning fibres from Ashford New Zealand. In addition a range of spinning wheels and weaving looms are set up for people to try their skills, or to look at updating or expanding their activities. Feel free to ask and have a play. We are proud to be an Ashford Dealer and carry their quality range of products.

If you are new and want to learn Tracy is a qualified teacher who offers both individual one on one classes as well as small group lessons, for all aspects of knitting spinning and weaving. Tracy has travelled across the state teaching adults and children.

Come and visit the beautiful Clare Valley and pop by for a chat and a chance to meet someone as passionate about yarn as you are.
