We bring together obsessive knitters of every level who are passionate and curious to make better more well-informed and savvy decisions about every project, so that we can explore everything this enthralling lifeskill has to offer.
We are creating a community to do this without the stress of trying to do it alone and to get answers to questions about knitting that do not have easy or obvious solutions so that we can make the projects of our dreams.
Our story is simple:
Deb created Outlaw Yarn and its various bases and colours to answer a need in the market for quality yarn and innovative colour palettes. Outlaw Yarn has grown from an initial base and colour run to span multiple bases and palettes that draw inspirations from the great art movements, the country of New Zealand, and her personal desires to have beautiful yarn available at reasonable prices to everyone.
Outlaw Yarn has grown from a wholesaler only to be a leader and physical shop in the New Zealand yarn community supported by a rich network of retailers and customers. With the growth of our community we realized that to fully reach everyone who needs us we had to create a space where we could meet, learn, and explore the knitting world together.
Opening Outlaw HQ and adding Ethan to the team in 2020 meant an influx of people and ideas into our organization. New classes and knitting groups created many more opportunities to connect but we wanted to go further, reach more people, and bring our expertise to everyone who needs support to keep growing in their craft.
Outlaw Online, this community is our answer. We are here to create connections and to help all of us grow together because we are better able to learn and adapt in community. There is a comfort in exploring and discovering new horizons with support and friendship.
