Cast off Collective was opened in May 2016 to offer crafters on Sydney's northern beaches a neighbourhood wool shop / LYS (Local Yarn Shop).
Blending artisan yarn supplies with vintage seafaring this is a unique and inspiring space that supports and nurtures contemporary makers. Celebrating handmade, slow-fashion and craft, Cast off Collective is dedicated to sourcing a range of natural and artisan fibres, useful tools and accessories to inspire you to create your own "Handmade with Love" pieces.
We host monthly SOCIAL knit & crochet events plus a regular Friday Drop-Everything-And-Knit afternoon. We also run regular knit & crochet WORKSHOPS designed for beginners through to 4 week masterclasses.
Checkout our EVENTS menu for all the details and follow us social media to stay up to date.
Why the vintage seafaring theme? As a family we like to go boating. We've had a few boats! At the moment it's a fixer upper 1945 timber cruiser. Mucking about on boats has been an antidote to the working/schooling week. Swimming, fishing and of course knitting & crochet. It's a win-win for everyone!
