Dyed with a careful hand and a wildness of heart, each skein has its own specialness, no two skeins are exactly alike. A unique blend of pinks, purples and blues, highlighted with yellow and white and splashes of green. Songbird is intended to delight and inspire.

No more nylon! This is the new and improved Fantail base, a blend of White Gum Wool ethical merino and tussah silk. The silk adds strength and a gorgeous subtle sheen. This base is also a tighter twist, providing excellent stitch definition as well as extra durability.

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.
