Hi fibre lovers
Natural Fibre Arts in an online store. Our physical location is in the beautiful Sunshine Coast region in Queensland Australia where the weather really is 'Beautiful one day, Perfect the next', we are truly blessed to be able to live in such a gorgeous part of the world.
I am Cheryl and I have been a lover of fibre arts since I was a child when I was taught to knit by my mother and grandmother. I have been dyeing yarn since 2008 using both natural dyes and acid dyes. As the Natural Fibre Arts business grew it was necessary to find another person to bring alongside me to help and Vanessa, my eldest daughter, was that person. While we are both dye artists she has come onboard and has been creating many of our gorgeous colourways over the past couple of years while I work behind the scenes on the blog, emails, website, product integration, photography, bookkeeping, shipping and all the million and one other things that need doing in a small business. Vanessa has a natural affinity for colour combinations and puts her artistic talents into action creating gorgeous and harmonious yarns and experimenting with new dyeing techniques.
We both love natural fibres and that is what you will predominately find here in the Natural Fibre Arts store. A few of our favourites are wool, yak, silk, bamboo, linen and hemp but we love trying our new fibres and offer a monthly yarn tasting so that you can too! Some of our yarns have a small amount of Nylon in them like our sock yarn, which adds strength to heels and toes for longer wearing.
In addition to yarn, we carry crafting accessories to give our customers an opportunity to buy everything in the same place so you can combine postage and keep costs to a minimum. We are constantly adding to our growing catalogue of products which currently include the fantastic ChiaoGoo brand of needles and accessories, pretty Knitpro Zing needles and hooks along with their other items like sock blockers, ball winders and more. We also have a range of dyes and undyed yarns so you can try your own hand at dyeing.
We would love you to join us on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram where you can find us under the Naturalfibrearts name or click through on our social media icons in the footer section of this website.
We love to see what you are making with our yarns so use the hashtag #naturalfibrearts or #naturalfibreartsyarn so we can see them.
