About us

Natural Fibre Arts

Natural Fibre Arts in an online fibre craft store located just north of the beautiful Sunshine Coast 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 the 'gentle arts' since I was a child when I was taught to knit, sew & embroider by my mother and grandmother.

I have been dyeing yarn since 2008 using both natural dyes and acid (wool - protein) dyes. In time I found that it was harder and harder to keep up with the business by myself and so my daughter Vanessa joined me as another dye artist.  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 out new fibres whenever we can. 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 but mostly they are pure animal or plant based.

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.

In 2021 my sister Sandra has also joined us in dyeing some of our colourways and we also carry a small range of items from her business WA Stylz. Sandra is a talented natural wood artist and hand carves gorgeous shawl pins, buttons and other accessories from Western Australian hardwood. She also makes our stitch marker range.

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 #nfayarn so we can see them.
