Rachel Canfield of Yuruga Plains Yarns at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show

Rachel Canfield loves knitting and crocheting and wanted to spin the wool grown on her parent’s property, Yuruga Plains, into yarn for her own use. But once spun, the wool was too good to keep just for herself and so Rachel decided she was going to share this product with others. After seeking out the few remaining local businesses that would process the families raw wool into yarn, Rachel was able to create an entirely local product that is made from start to finish, in Victoria. Yuruga Plains yarns can be purchased online at www.yurugaplains.com.au. The story of Yuruga Plains fine merino wool has been generations in the making. The Canfield’s, have been producing fine merino wool in the Loddon Valley region in Victoria for more than 80 years. Rachel’s parents, Geoff and Carol Canfield are long term One Oak Poll clients.
