My Fibre Products
My passion is natural fibres; hand processed using the traditions of years gone by and the innovations of the present. I am invested in sustainability, environmental consciousness and consumption with awareness.
I aim to use only the highest quality fibres hand-selected from small-scale fibre farms. All purchases are made consciously recognizing a need for strong local, regional and global trade practices that promote strong economies throughout the world.
Designed to inspire my products are created with purpose and fun. Each detail is meticulously thought out and care taken to ensure only the highest quality rovings, batts, yarns and finished products make it to the Etsy shelves.
I love to use unique fibre blends, stunning colour combinations and a touch of sparkle all as traceable to the source as I can get them!
I hope that my handcrafted fibre supplies set the stage for an amazing creation experience.
Subject to Availability
I use live inventory, however all products are subject to availability. This means that on occasion a product may get oversold. Some products will simply be put on back order and you will be contacted to let you know the estimated date of shipment. Hand painted and carded products that are oversold will turn into a dye/card to order and will have a two to three week turn around time. Please pay particular attention for when I am at shows as my online shop will remain active and although I use live inventory, which means that as an item sells it will show up as sold out online, there is still the possibility of human error. You can see show/exhibition and festival dates listed on the Where To Find Us page. If there is something from my shop you would like please place you order a day in advance of the show and I will ship it upon my return.
A Quick Rugged Luxury verses Pristine Fibre Note
My fibre is fabulous. (well at least I think so:)
It is rugged and luxurious, but it may not be for you, and thats okay!!!
Due to the nature of fibre animals: sheep, alpacas, goats, etc. fleece comes with all sorts of fun goodies, from straight up vegetable matter (hay, seeds, twigs, burs, etc.) to less desirables (eeekk...sheep poop!).
I do my absolute best during the skirting, sorting, washing, dying, picking, carding, spinning, knitting, felting stages to remove the absolute most amount of these unexpected treasurers. I generally get all the less desirables, it is the vegetable matter that is exceptionally tricky.
The more finished the fibre product you receive (handspun yarn) the less likely it will be that there will be any bits of hay or seeds. The less fiddled with, hand dyed locks for example, may have a touch more vegetable matter.
I always choose interesting and beautiful fibres even if means a slightly dirtier fleece to work with. If I consider there to be excess vegetable matter or dirt I will note it in the item description.
What type of Fibre Artist are you??? Hint: no wrong answer!
If you don't mind picking out a few of these bits and pieces throughout your fibre journey then; rock on and purchase.
If the idea of a little dirt and hay makes you twinge; consider carefully before purchase. Send me a note if your not sure and I can double check your selection.
If you absolutely detest fibre products that are not pristine; then please look elsewhere for your fibre goodies, no hard feelings. If you are at a loss for where to look, message me and I will do my best to recommend another fibre artist with less rugged luxury and more pristine fibre:)
I do my best to accurately represent the colours of my products. As computer screens may vary, the colour that you see when you order may look tonally different when you are holding it in your hands.

From a smoke free home. I use all natural soaps and your fibre will not be full of scents. It will be protected from moths through the use of essential oils that act as a deterrent. Pets are present in the home.
