The Mornington Wool Shop – A simple plan.

Our plan is simple; we want to give you the best online shopping experience for everything knitting and crochet in Australia. To do this, we need you to tell us what you want and how we can improve please. Email us here with your suggestions.

Community VIP Club.

Please join our Community VIP Club to access our community’s wealth of experience and knowledge. The club also gives us the chance to talk and for you to provide us with your precious feedback.

Evolution, not revolution.

As we all know, retail is changing fast. Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing transfer of sales from our physical store in Mornington to our Online store. When our lease can up for renewal with the inevitable rent rise, rather than sign a new lease, we took the plunge and built a new online presence, this website and the associated Community VIP Club, with its private Facebook Group and Instagram page.

Promoting Australian products

Without the retail rent, we will be able to invest in the business bringing on new lines and, in particular, promoting Australian knitting yarns and other products.

Here for the long haul.

It may surprise some of you that The Mornington Wool Shop celebrated its 50th Anniversary in March of 2021; I am afraid it was a somewhat muted celebration!

The original shop was in The Mall off Main Street, Mornington; some of you may remember those days. I took over the business in 1998, eventually moving it into the big bright shop in Yuilles Road, Mornington.

We had added patchwork and embroidery to our knitting products by this time. We became known at the Mornington Wool and Patchwork Centre.


Although this website is all about wool, yarns and accessories for knitting and crochet, we are still selling our remaining patchwork fabrics at bargain prices at

Handmade is not homemade. Do it right and wear it with pride!

Kind regards
