Welcome to the home of Outlaw Yarn. Luxury yarn with attitude.
Proudly New Zealand made.
Covid-19 Update: *** Attention all knitters and crochet addicts! *** Due to the Level 4 lockdown in place in New Zealand, Outlaw Yarn and Outlaw HQ are closed until further notice..
When you live in a country famous for it’s wool industry it would be criminal not to take advantage of the wealth of stunning fibre on your doorstep. Outlaw is a new brand of luxury yarn from New Zealand, the country where sheep outnumber people.
Proudly made in one of the last remaining spinning mills in operation, Outlaw Yarn is committed to keeping yarn production local.
New Zealanders are recognised worldwide for their pioneering spirit and sense of adventure. This legacy continues in the Outlaw spirit as each of the colour ranges is themed to create visual stories inspired by the creative leaders of the world, past and present. The artists and explorers who challenge the status quo with daring visions of a new world are celebrated by carefully chosen palettes of colours to inspire crafters to create their own masterpieces.
Why the magpie? Because they are collectors of the beautiful and the interesting.
However, it’s not enough for the Outlaw brand to be about quality yarn at a reasonable price, and a variety of pretty colours.
You expect that from all yarn brands.
It’s not even enough to fly the made in NZ flag and talk about being eco-friendly and sustainable, because I know you expect that too.
I want Outlaw to be about celebrating who you are, inspiring you to be your wild and crazy best self, whatever that looks like for you.
I want us to be a community that laughs and learns together, where every single one of us knows our value, and our craft is an expression of our individuality.
Outlaw Yarn expects every member of our digital or physical community to abide by our values of inclusion, respect, and kindness. You are welcome, no matter how different your skin colour, sexual orientation, gender, body, or religion might be from ours. We will not tolerate racism, bigotry, or discrimination.
I want to empower us to love our bodies and accept them just as they are.
I want us to embrace our personal style and wear it with flair.
Fashion is for sheep.
We are the adventurers, the explorers, the innovators. We are the rebels, the outliers, the Outlaws, and we will rock the world.
