About us

Hello …

Sunspun is a little jewel box of a yarn store in the Melbourne suburb of Canterbury, just around the corner from the charming little shopping village on Maling Road, about 10 km from Melbourne’s CBD. (click here to view a map of our location).

Sunspun has been selling beautiful yarns from this shop for more than thirty years, and is one of Melbourne’s oldest yarn shops. Amy is now its latest (and only the fourth) owner. We love knitting, crocheting, weaving and working with yarn, and for the crafts’ rich history, cultural diversity and the communities they foster.

Now fully renovated and carrying new lines, we continue the tradition of supplying crafters with a peerless selection of yarns, patterns, notions and accessories to inspire and help you decide what to make.

We stock yarns by The Fibre Company, Woolfolk, Cleckheaton, Rowan, Shibui, Debbie Bliss, Shilasdair, Noro, Jo Sharp and others, and are exclusive stockists of Isager and Shilasdair yarns in Australia.

We carry books and patterns by all the major manufacturers, and by independent designers such as Brooklyn Tweed, Olgajazzy, Kirsten Johnstone and more, as well as knitting and crochet tools and equipment from Fringe Association, Clover, Addi and Knitpro.

We run classes throughout the year, and are available for private consultations by appointment.

If you can’t make it into our store, we are happy to take orders over the phone or via email and mail out to you. You can check out what we carry on our online store, and stay in touch with us through our blog and on Instagram. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter here, and join our Ravelry group here.

At Sunspun, we are always ready to share new ideas with you, and to help you with crafting advice, encouragement and suggestions. Drop by (or drop us a line) and say hello!

Happy making wherever you are.​​
