MISSION:  To provide mindfully created yarns and inspiration that contributes to a positive, nurturing, and uplifting making experience.

The Augustbird mission is to enhance the joy and wellbeing of the crafting community by providing ethically sourced, hand-dyed yarns. Rooted in the belief that knitting is a powerful practice for nourishing the soul, I strive to offer a range of  yarns that not only elevate your creative projects but also align with my commitment to ethical and sustainable practices. I am dedicated to fostering a sense of mindfulness and self-acceptance through the art of knitting, ensuring that every skein of yarn tells a story of kindness, creativity, and a better way forward.

VISION: Augustbird is on a mission to make knitting a powerful tool for self-care, where each stitch is a step towards mindfulness and self-acceptance.

I dream of a world where the act of crafting is not just a creative pursuit but a transformative journey toward joy and calm. I aspire to be a leader in self-care and creativity, providing yarns that inspire you to connect with nature, express yourself, and find solace in the meditative rhythm of knitting. My vision extends beyond yarn – I aim to be a beacon of support and knowledge, empowering knitters and makers to embrace a mindful lifestyle. Through my commitment to kindness, creativity, and sustainability, I envision Augustbird as a trusted companion on every knitter's path, weaving more happiness and self acceptance into the fabric of their lives.

A hug for my feet!

My most favourite, treasured, warmest pair of socks I own were lovingly knitted from this beautiful hand-dyed wool…. I absolutely live in them! The natural colour is gorgeous, the wool & silk blend is soft, so comfortable against my skin, & durable as it puts up with the friction of me walking around in my socks all the time. Usually I have to double-sock in the winter with all my other generic socks from the retail shops, but this single layer of wool doesn’t suffocate or bulk-up my feet, & it keeps them comfortably warm & toasty (& pretty) especially during these very chilly winter days, no more numb toes. This wool holds its shape & washes well. I love love love how the colour was achieved too, it’s a beautiful, delicate, earthy neutral. Thank-you so much Bec for sharing your creativity, passion & talent for others to enjoy x
