About SYS

Born from childhood memories of a crocheting grandmother and a lifelong love for making things out of yarn, Secret Yarn Stash in an online haven for knitting novices, certified crochet addicts, macramé masters and everyone in between. We stock our online shop with nothing but the best vegan-friendly, high quality, non-animal yarns in every colour you can imagine, as well as all the bits and bobs you need to round off or elevate your creations. 

All things bright and beautiful

We love everything four-legged and fluffy, which is why we stock our shelves exclusively with non-animal fibres in an effort to promote farm animal welfare. There are so many high-quality alternative yarns available these days that you won’t even miss traditional animal-derived wools. For every popular animal-produced yarn, we stock a premium alternative with the same weight, look and feel, so you won’t have to make adjustments to your knitting or crochet patterns. Knit, crochet and craft with confidence in your results and rest easy knowing that no animal suffered to produce your yarn. Of course, it goes without saying that all of our yarns are vegan friendly so you can have complete peace of mind as you work away!

Crafting is a superpower

We don’t know if generosity and kind-heartedness are side-effects of the crafting process, but we do know that we love the big hearts in our community. We want to keep encouraging you to use your superpower for the good of those in need, which is why we offer a large and affordable range of baby wools, basic acrylics, pure cotton and cotton mix yarns. These pocket-friendly yarns are ideal for creating all the items you love to donate to your favourite causes, from baby hats and booties to school scarves and lap blankets for the elderly. 

Always with our planet in mind

We hate wasteful plastic packaging as much as you do! That’s why we are always coming up with innovative packaging solutions that offer complete protection for your products without filling your bin with plastic and Styrofoam. Our latest discovery is fully recyclable mailing bags made of sugarcane. These clever bags do a great job of shielding your goods from the elements and handling during shipping and are completely carbon neutral, making them a sustainable packaging option after our own hearts.
