It's Pretty Knotted is a local Western Australian brand crafting artisanal extreme knitted home decor and wares using only 100 per cent premium 18-micron superfine Australian Merino wool.

Our pieces are 'labours of love' and we are passionate about every item that we create and all products are individually hand-knitted to produce exquisite unique wares.

We place an emphasis on our superior quality wares and only knit with 18 microns (fibre width) which is super fine premium material with a baby soft texture. Other extreme knitters typically use 23-microns wool that is of inferior quality and makes for products that have a coarser texture that is not so dreamy and soft to touch.

As a creative artist, founder Wendy McClelland has always been captivated and inspired by the arrays of colours and textures that exist amongst textiles and have worked with them for most of her life.

She first got a taste for spinning and knitting in the early 80s when one of the craft’s founders in Western Australia - Mrs De La Hunty, shared her skills and passion for working with wool. Wendy was a young and eager apprentice living on the coastal town Albany, and she was a 91-year-old teacher who never let her near blindness and stiff wizened fingers get in the way of her expert use of the spinning wheel.

Many years later, Wendy discovered the beautiful Merino woollen tops that she now works with. She loves the feeling and texture of the product and the beautiful yarn that it produces, plus it is so soft and turns the notion that wool is itchy and uncomfortable completely on its head. Merino fibres are so much finer and softer than other standard wools.

As a next to skin layer, Merino wool is hard to beat. Another feature of Merino wool which is wonderful is that it has a natural oft that traps heat very efficiently between the fibres, making it warmer than a synthetic of the same weight. It is such an amazing product that she feels passionate about and is the foundation of It's Pretty Knotted's products.

We had a lovely morning with Wendy learning how to make a knitted cushion. Wendy was very patient and helped us all one by one when needed. We were all greatly entertained and enjoyed her delish cake and coffee too.

Wendy was absolutely lovely. Environment was beautiful and relaxed, with a friendly pet that came to say hello, making it even more chilled. Knitting was really fun, and I will definitely be using my new skill again!

Friendly welcoming teacher. Small group (6) allowed the teacher to help us when needed. Wasn’t expecting it to be at someone’s home with pets roaming around.

Virginia Ting Aug 2021

Wendy was a delightful teacher & made my experience learning the crocheted merino wool cushion so easy. I came away with a gorgeous product I love & am inspired to replicate. Her home was the perfect cosy way to spend an avo learning a new craft & her homemade cake would make Donna Hays proud. I highly recommend Wendy's workshop - you'll not only have a ball but enjoy the best social chats with like minded companions.
