Our Story

Come and Get to Know Us

Ministry of Yarn behind the scenes

Sometimes the world feels a bit too fast, and a bit too impersonal.  Ministry of Yarn would like to change that, one stitch at a time. We partner with you by providing yarn and tools that are only:

  • recycled content
  • fairtrade
  • organic/high welfare 

You create, whilst caring for the world and improving the lives of those who made our products.

We are a community, sharing skills, techniques and inspiration. We make our world a friendlier and better place, one beanie/scarf/rug/wall-hanging at a time.

Caring for others and for our planet, is part of our DNA. Our promise to you, is that we are, and always will be, socially and environmentally responsible.  We work to ensure that all of our yarns are sourced from producers who pay a fair wage, and provide safe conditions for their workers. Where possible, we ship with a carbon neutral shipping company, in materials made of 100% or very high recycled content.  

Compassion Mums and Babies ProgramNot only do we support fair trade production values, but we give back at least $2.00 from every order we receive, to the Compassion Mum's and Babies program. This program provides excellent antenatal care to babies and mums in developing countries.

We aim to be totally honest with you.  We want to free you up to enjoy your creative journey.


The face behind the brand

Bek Hudson - founder of Ministry of Yarn Ministry of Yarn was founded by Bek Hudson. She is married to  John, is based in Melbourne, and has four young  children. After seeing a gap in the market for t-shirt yarn, Bek's initial idea for an online yarn shop grew in size and scale,  eventually expanding out to include range of organic, high  welfare and fairly produced yarns and accessories (she really likes to research!).  Bek really wants Ministry of Yarn to be more like a trusted  friend and community, than just a yarn brand.  She's been busy making things since she was a child, and loves to share those passions and skills with others.

Most of all, she's excited to be able to join together with others to make a real difference in the lives of the most vulnerable in our world.
