Wife has a hobby she runs from home for an income, not registered with SARS! Is she allowed to open a Tax-free savings account in parallel with me who is registered with SARS and also want to open this account. Thus can we together contribute R60K / year?

Yes, there is a limit of R30,000 per person per year so she can contribute too.
However, please note if she is earning more than R73,650 per year (income less expenses) she should be registered as a provisional taxpayer with SARS and paying tax on her income.
