we are gatherers and makers

of ethically sourced, artisan hand-dyed yarn, and quality fibre art tools

Our Story

We are a small, family run, fibre arts business started in 2008 by Cheryl and are located just north of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Cheryl is the main dyer and adminstrative operator. When you email or phone, she is who will look after you.

In 2012 Vanessa, Cheryl's daughter, came on board as a dyer with a wonderful creative flare for gorgeous colour combinations and a passion to develop new colourways.

Now in 2021 Sandra, Cheryl's sister, has joined the Natural Fibre Arts team as both a yarn dyer and as our very own wood worker and crafts person. Sandra makes the most gorgeous wooden accessories and beaded stitch markers to add to our locally made and produced artisan fibre tools.

Together we Lovingly dye beautiful artisan yarns that are sustainable and ethically sourced. Our established practices and unique dyeing methods produce professional and quality hand dyed yarns. The Merino fibre is sourced from mills who in turn source the wool from farmers who do not employ mulesing on their flocks. We support the local Australian wool industry where possible and other small crafting businesses like ourselves. 

We love what we do, and we love that you love what we do too!
