Getting Cozy with The Woollen Earth
The Luxuriously Warm World of The Woollen Earth
Sally is known as the crazy wool lady, and she’s always ready to welcome you to the luxuriously warm world of The Woollen Earth. As the sole designer and maker behind her brand, Sally has always worked in large scale art. Starting initially with paintings, and then couture wedding dresses, she now works with wool, turning Australia’s finest, most tactile Merino wool into wearable fashion.
Sally learnt to crochet while living on the road with her young family. Travelling the coast of Australia, the desire to scale up her crochet designs hit, and from there, she began to work with large scale chunky wool. Now, Sally spends her time prolifically designing and making chunky wool fashion. Her pieces include statement scarves, beanies to die for, headbands, and “hoodies” – all unique in their design. She has since carefully perfected each style, so it is both functional and beautiful to wear.
Sally is committed to sourcing Australian wool and is passionate about working with such a sustainable product. She loves being able to shine a light on one of Australia’s proudest primary industries, while also bringing wool and the ancient art of crochet into a modern context.
Sally has grown The Woollen Earth beyond just fashion, expanding into luxurious woollen throw rugs, and even teaching crochet. Her DIY crochet kits are one of her most popular products. When you purchase a kit, you’ll receive her unique pattern for her Circle Scarf design with written instructions. You’ll also receive a giant timber crochet hook, and all the wool you need to make your very own scarf. It’s the perfect weekend project while it’s chilly outside!
