Lyrebird Yarns is Helen Keenan, a fibre artist based in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney, NSW, where she lives with her two small rescue dogs. She has been spinning since 2013, and selling yarns at markets and festivals since 2017. All the yarns are one-off designs, made from locally sourced fibre where possible.
I only source high quality fibres from sources I know. Yarns won’t break, or have breaks or knots in them. Where there is more than one skein, this will be noted on the item. Yarns and fibres are tested for colour-fastness before being offered for sale, although there may be slight colour bleed in the first few washes. I always recommend a gentle hand-wash in cool water separate to other items.
Shawl pins are made from polymer clay, with the stick made from 3.25mm bamboo knitting needles. They can be used for shawls, or as accessories on knitted garments or even as hair accessories.
