Easy To Knit Wool Yarns

African Expressions was born from the desire for Africa to share her natural beauty with the rest of the world.  Through our unique range of yarns we express the essence of that which makes Africa magical.  Our network of local farmers breed stock bearing excellent fibres to ensure our wool yarns are naturally soft to the touch and luxuriously versatile.

365 days a year, 7 days a week, our farmers enjoy a close and special relationship with their herd and the animals enjoy a life unsurpassed, ensuring the production of a better quality of natural fibre for the benefit of all lovers of knitting.Thick Pullover

From farm to store, each and every process is handled with the utmost of care to ensure that the fibres are treated delicately and with the respect that they deserve.  Our range of select colours is inspired by the landscapes of South Africa – from sunrise to sunset.  Each colour represents one small element that makes Africa, Africa. Our heart and soul is knitted firmly into Africa and would like to invite you to join us in this “African Expressions” Experience.


SAMIL Natural Fibres is the proud manufacturer of all of African Expressions wool yarns. Through its involvement in all aspects of the industry, SAMIL’s aim is to provide a sustainable, affordable, superior quality product to the world, showcasing not only the product but also the industry, country of origin and individuals participating in the production of the fibre.

  • This is the chapter of my story where I trade a lifetime of fear for a lifetime of freedom by learning how to fight. It’s the part where I transform from victim to hero on every page I write for the rest of my life.... #HappyWomensDay (Ps: no humans or animals were harmed in this image! Thanks to @claypigeon_adventures for all the adventures and for empowering all my ladies to be fighters)
