Sharon Clues of ethelruby



I have been a maker and creator for as long as I can remember but spent a long time caught on the corporate treadmill. In 2010, I decided to take some time out to re-focus on what was important to me. I bought myself a knitting machine so I could experiment with extra fine yarns and I enrolled in a Textile Design course at RMIT. During that year, I created the label ethelruby – named after my great grandmother who taught me to knit.

At present, ethelruby offers a range of hand and machine knitted accessories made from natural yarns, fibres and fabrics including cashmere, silk, alpaca, linen, merino and cotton. Each piece is unique and reflects my love of simple, elegant design, muted tones and luxurious fibres.

My practice is always evolving, and there are plans to expand the range into homewares and fashion. I am passionate about sustainability and I am inspired by innovative design and people who are creative and passionate about their lives and the environment.



To create a range of knits and textiles that combine beauty, comfort and function using sustainable practices.

    My name is Joyce Zhang, a sweater designer in NYC . I”m currently looking for knitter/knitting factory that can help me produce some samples of baby blankets.
    I’m interested in machine knit chunky gauge cable and/or hand knitting using yarn such as Alpaca, merino wool blend. Do you offer this type of service?
