About

Prosper Yarn knows great hand dyed yarns begin at their base.  Featuring locally grown, minimally processed yarns is my joy.  That sheep to skein story is important, so you'll find heaps of New Zealand Merino, Polwarth, Romney, Corriedale, Merino Cross, Kid Mohair, and Possum in the shop. 

And colour! Prosper Yarn's palettes reflect my moods, so you can find quiet, calm neutrals and tonals, just as well as pastels softly swaying and neon speckles occasionally shouting across these pages. 

It is my privilege to share New Zealand's wonderful yarns with you.   Which is why, customer service is a priority.  You should love your shopping experience as much as you love your yarn (well almost as much); because if you keep coming back, Prosper can keep supporting our local wool growers and processors.

Your purchase counts for a lot.

On a personal note - Prosper Yarn is named for my dad in honour of his favourite television character, Spock, from Star Trek. Spock's signature phrase was, "Live Long and Prosper".  We never missed seeing an episode or a movie together.

Live Long, Knit, and Prosper,

Lester
