Fleece Artist was established in 1979 to supply fellow textile artists with natural fibres. Their customers demanded better colours than were commercially available and their dream was to be able to offer any colour in any natural fibre.
Their belief is that we knit because it warms our heart and our body. Fleece Artist yarns are practical, hardworking and carefully curated from a set of breeds chosen to keep us comfy. Each skein is dyed to excite our senses. They dye every pot imagining you touching, seeing, and creating with them, and experiencing magic of watching them stripe, pool and develop. They imagine how special a recipient of a beautiful gift will feel, and the compliments you get on your own garments. As they select and dye our yarns they imagine the warmth they will create, and it makes them warm.
They now hand dye many colourways in silks, wools, kid mohairs, alpacas and angoras in yarns and slivers.
