Touch Yarns

From the finest New Zealand Merino wool ideal for knitting, weaving, embroidery, felting and embellishment of garments.

All Touch Yarns and colours are designed by Marnie Kelly, inspired by the stark beauty of thyme fields, mountains and the historic goldfields of Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand.

Central Otago also boasts origins of some of the world's finest quality wool and mohair. With sharp, seasonal climate variations and low rainfall, conditions are well suited for growing the high quality fibre used in Touch Yarns.
