We are part of Salamanca Arts Centre, and can be found at 69 Salamanca Place just past Woobys Lane. We are a retail knitwear and yarn shop for those with an 'acquired wool disorder'.

Hello, so glad we could help you. The fibre mix sounds delightful and will make a lovely memory of Tasmania and New Zealand. Would love to see a picture of the finished scarf once finished, you can post to our facebook page. Cheers Cheryl

Beautiful hand made items with excellent quality materials. The colors were gorgeous! Just a bit pricey for me though. Located on Salamanca Place where the big market is held on Saturdays. Charming old warehouse buildings restored and used for art galleries, shops and restaurants.
