For the love of fibre

I have loved the gentle arts of embroidery, knitting and sewing since I was a little girl and also love to support local artists, small business and farmers. Etsy provides a place for people to make a living from doing what they love and I am happy to be a part of this community.

Natural Fibre Arts started when I renewed my love of knitting while living in Doha, Qatar and was invited to attend a weekly group of expats, like-minded people who were passionate about their knitting and spinning. It was there that I first learned to spin on a drop spindle and later on a wheel.

Dyeing came soon after and once returning to Australia I made my dreams of starting my own online store a reality.

Now I dye with both naturally sourced ingredients and also purchased protein reactive dyes, on both yarn and roving. I try to be as environmentally sustainable as possible with natural dyeing, never removing a large amount of dye stuff from any one area so that the micro-environment remains unharmed. I also try to use mineral mordants that are not harmful to our environment but help to retain the colour in the yarn and roving.

I hope you enjoy browsing through Natural Fibre Arts and that you will spread the word to help support both my store and the Etsy community as a whole.

My facebook page is under the name of All Natural Dyeing and I also have a website that shows you how you can also achieve natural dyeing results and what plants to use. You can see these by clicking on the links to the right of this shop blurb.

Frequently asked questions
What if my order is lost in shipping?

We have the option to post items without tracking at a greatly reduced cost to you, however if you decide to choose this option it is at your own risk as tracking is not included. There is also the option for you to add tracking to your order and we will send the tracking number with your dispatch notification.

If you do not choose the tracked option and your parcel goes missing we cannot be held responsible. Once we lodge your order with Australia Post, we will take a photo of it to prove that it has been shipped and lodged but then it is out of our hands.

We have been posting out orders since 2008 and have only lost a handful in all that time so the odds are in your favour.

Custom and personalised orders

We are more than happy to dye up a custom order for you or to order in a ChiaoGoo or Knitpro product that we don't already carry. Just send us a message.

Why Don't You Accept Returns?

Actually we do accept returns on faulty items from ChiaoGoo and Knitpro and happily do so.

Please contact us if you find that your order is in some way faulty and we will have you send it back at our expense.

This does not include if you have changed your mind or if you order the wrong size, however if that does occur we will still refund your order or replace your order but the return shipping is at your own expense.
