Woolybutt Knitting Story

Since 1973 we've been serving Melbourne's knitting community...

Established in 1973, Woolybutt has been a cornerstone of the Australian knitting community for over half a century. We are Australian family owned and operated.

With our roots in Melbourne, we’ve grown from a local favourite to a well-recognised brand, extending our reach through our online store.

Our name, Woolybutt, is inspired by the Eucalyptus longifolia, a species of eucalyptus tree commonly known as woollybutt. This tree, native to eastern Australia, is known for its rough, fibrous bark and beautiful white flowers, predominantly found on clay soils and floodplains.

At Woolybutt, we pride ourselves on offering comprehensive knitting and haberdashery services. Our expert team is dedicated to supporting both local and international yarn suppliers. We also provide classes catering to all skill levels, ensuring everyone can enjoy the art of knitting.
