Handmade from the heart...

March Yarns opened in April 2019 and aims to provide Colac and the South West with a thriving hub for knitters and crocheters of all abilities and budgets. It offers a welcoming environment and support from its staff with projects and in creative decision-making. We promote the pleasure and creativity of knitting, crochet and other crafts and the joy of making things and 'going slow'.

March Yarns stocks a very wide range of yarns from the basics for everyday projects to prestige brands for special creations. It also stocks a wide selection of patterns books and pamphlets as well as references to patterns found online. The range of needles and notions provides choices to suit all projects and preferences.

The name 'March Yarns' is inspired by the start of Autumn in Australia and the cosiness that comes with the change of weather - perfect for knitting and crocheting lovely warm garments and blankets. We also reference the  March daughters from 'Little Women' - Jo (especially Jo), Meg, Beth and Amy - industrious, creative, talented characters whose stories provided such enjoyment.
