About us

Welcome to Flock and Needle,

Flock and needle is based in Grafton on the beautiful north coast of NSW and was founded in March 2015 by me, Alison!

In 2014 I started to teach myself to crochet and knit as part of a plan to improve my mental health, I quickly became obsessed with all things yarn and was very disappointed with the availability of yarns that were beautiful and affordable in Australia, Indie dyers are few and also for me they take too long to deliver. For me yarn buying has been about fast gratification not waiting 2 months to get started on a project. This meant I started dying my own yarn and experimenting and this is honestly my favorite part of the whole process now, apart from having a finished object in yarn I've dyed myself of course!
