Coledale Twilight Markets - Illawarra

Posted by on

Rainbow Wools will be making their Wollongong debut at the Coledale Twilight Markets. We have been in Wollongong for 2 years now, after purchasing the business from the previous owner and moving it to our home in Figtree. You'll be surprised at the range of yarn we carry from hand dyed wool to linen, silk, alpaca, jute, hemp, paper, and much more. We have unique weaving, felting and macrame kits to get you off to a great start with your yarning, looming or crafting.

Rainbow Wools has been sharing their gorgeous yarns with the people of Canberra and Southern Highlands but we've been a bit of secret in Wollongong. Buy local and support us as we support artisans and crafters.

We also supply weaving looms, knitting needles and crochet hooks. We can teach you how to weave, spin and macrame and we even have Loom Parties for kids! 

Textile Indulgence Weaving Kits available $55
