The Palliser Ridge team are excited to be joining as Martinborough Fair stall-holders for 2022!
Based just 20 minutes South of where the fair takes place, this Sheep and Beef station is all about diversifying into New Zealand Grown and Made homewares, fashion & craft goods.
As the 2019 Greater Wellington Supreme winners of the Ballance Farm Environment awards, Palliser Ridge has a large focus on sustainability, farming regeneratively and working with nature rather than against it.
The farm itself, and all of it's products are certified NZ Grown, NZ Made and Land to Market verified; giving you peace of mind that your supporting a business that's doing the right thing.
In August 2020 Hyundai Country Calendar came to visit, you may have seen the beautiful wool products on the episode here.
The woven scarves will be just part of what's on offer at the stall this year; come and feel for yourself the difference that traceable prcoesses can make and choose a gift that you can wear with pride.

Kia ora! I'm Heather. I create beautiful hand-dyed yarn from my small studio in Te Awakairangi/Lower Hutt. My yarns are ethically and sustainably sourced and I operate my business with the utmost care and respect for people and our environment in everything I do.
I love creating rich, earthy colourways on finest quality yarns for knitters, crocheters and weavers to work with. My yarn can be bought online or in person when in stock or you can pre-order with me (yarn is dyed to order). Hand-dyed, handwoven scarves can also be made to order or purchased when in stock. Please contact me for any custom / bespoke orders.
You can peruse and buy here and you can follow me on Insta or Facebook here.
I'm a dyer, weaver and knitter constantly learning more about these arts from the amazing people involved in the fibre arts community in Aotearoa and beyond. I hope to meet you at Martinborough Fair or at other events I am trading at this year - Covid fingers crossed!! If not in person, then online, it will be lovely to meet you and chat about all things colour and yarn.
