Touch Yarns is a family-owned and operated business spanning over 25 years and 3 generations.
In 1991 Marnie Kelly established the company, using softer superfine kid mohair, merino and polwarth wools to produce a range of knitting and weaving yarns that avoided the prickle factor of coarser knitting wools on the market.
The home of Touch Yarns was then, and still is, Central Otago, New Zealand. The stark beauty of thyme fields, mountains and the historic goldfields provide inspiration while the area boasts some of the world’s finest quality wool and mohair. With sharp seasonal climate variations and low rainfall, conditions are well suited for growing the high-quality fibre used in Touch Yarns.
