Our APRIL fibre feature is natural or dyed PLANT FIBRES & BLENDS. We have loads to choose from, including Bamboo, Cotton, Flax, Hemp, Ramie, Corn, Seacell, Soy, Tencel and Viscose, as well as various blends with some of these. You will find them listed under the main FIBRES category on the cart, as well us under Fibres>Natural Roving & Top>Exotic or also under Blends.

PLANT FIBRES are somewhat neglected by many spinners, and ignored by most felters. While it's true that they will not wet felt by themselves, they are useful as felting embellishments on top of a wool foundation. The plant fibres attach to the wool quite well then, as the wool shrinks, they get pulled into the most delightful squiggly patterns!

MUCH MORE includes everything else in our shop, and that means loads of stuff! Here you'll find a short list of books and loads of gadgets and tools for spinning, weaving, carding, combing, dyeing, felting and other fibre crafts. Don't see that special tool you need? Give us a shout and we will try and track it down or at least find a good source.
