Carding on a Saturday morning. This is a lovely Corriedale x Merino that we are processing on consignment for a customer from Sydney’s Upper North Shore. Contact us if you’ve got a fleece or other fibre that you need processed! 😊 . . #woolprocessing #fibreshed #wool #merino #corriedale #corriedalexmerino #fibrelove #naturalwool #saturdaymorning
The chill is back in the breeze today as I run my errands in Wyong. So I’ve thrown on my @knittersguildnsw FibreFest shawl (designed by @dominiquetrad and hand-dyed yarn by @willowandthewisp ). I’ve paired it with the Classic Waves @jul_designs shawl pin. 💙 . . #fibrefestshawl2018 #handknit #handknitshawl #juldesigns #shawlpin #woodenshawlpin #wyong #wyongnsw #knit #knittersofinstagram
If you live in Australia, you've probably heard by now that AusPost is raising their postage rates on 1 October. It is a significant increase across all postage (including flat-rate). So to save on postage, get your orders in before the end of the month. And don't forget that we offer free pickup from our Jilliby studio and are happy to arrange to meet you on the NSW Central Coast or in Newcastle. Just message us for more details. #auspost #postageincrease #australiansmallbusiness
Did you know that each issue of @koelmagazine includes several patterns from across many different fibre arts disciplines? As soon as I saw the adorable Crispin Rabbit crochet pattern by @picapauyan in Issue 6 (the most recent issue), I knew I had to make it. I used 10-ply washable wool in natural and hand-dyed colours from my stash. Since it is going to be a baby shower present for my cousin in the US, I opted for embroidered eyes and made the overalls in bright Aussie green and gold 🇦🇺 . . Issue 6 also includes two knitting patterns, another crochet pattern, a macrame wall hanging, a summery tapestry weaving pattern, some delicate needlework and two patterns for Punch needling (one by @rosepearlman and both perfect for use with the @amy.oxford tools). We have a few copies still available! . . #koelmagazine #koelmagazineissue6 #crochet #crispínrabbit #babypresent #handmade #stuffedtoy #somuchfun
We’ve got three events on our calendar in October! First up... the NSW Handweavers and Spinners Guild Open Day in Burwood! It’s a great line-up of vendors and there will be demonstrations too. We are looking forward to it! . . #woolmarket #spin #weave #felt #knit #crochet #yarn #wool #fibrelove
**Back in stock** We have a very limited number of our popular unbleached hemp fibre back in stock! This hemp fibre is unbleached and not highly processed. The fibre is very long in length and is chunky, but still soft. It is ideal for weaving projects, basketry or as an embellishment in a felting project. Link in bio and search “unbleached hemp”. . . #hempfibre #hemp #ecofibre #rawfibre #basketry #basketrynsw #weaveing #weave #uniquefibre #plantfibre #ecofriendly #fibrelove
Trying out our new line of rug yarn, hand-dyed by local indie dyer @willowandthewisp 😊 Love the colours! This 16-ply Aussie-raised Perendale yarn is perfect for use with the @amy.oxford regular gauge punch needle tools. And I used a Mr FeltFine push frame and monks cloth as the backing fabric. All available in our online shop! (And yes, that is a clarinet ship lamp in the background...my father-in-law takes old musical instruments and turns them into lamps! He’s got a few different ones available for sale. ) . . #rugpunch #punchneedleembroidery #amyoxford #amyoxfordpunchneedle #rughooking #handcraft #woolcraft #handmade #slowcraft #sundayafternooncrafting

Hey wet felting enthusiasts! We are now stocking two new colours of ball brausers: lime green 💚 and saffron yellow 💛 Add a little fun colour to your felting toolbox! . . Don’t know what a ball brauser is? Not a worry. Also know as sprinklers, watering pears and wet felting bulbs, these handy tools help wet down fibre in the wet felting process. The thick yet flexible rubber bulb protects the hand from hot soapy water and the metal sprinkler head helps to evenly distribute the water onto the fibre. Also used to water bonsai trees! . . #wetfelting #feltmaking #felting #ballbrause #ballbrauser #feltingtool
Last week I posted a photo of our youngest (aka Red Cheetah) spinning at my new @ashford_wheels_looms Joy2. Here is his first chunky mini skein! He is so proud and can’t wait to get back to the wheel soon. Although I’m keeping this one for myself (I think it is only fair that I get first dibs on his first yarn! 😉) he tells me that he will have more available for sale soon. ❤️ . . #redcheetah #handspunyarn #spinnersofinstagram #spin #handspun #artyarn #chunkyminiskein #fibrelove
My 2018 FibreFest Shawl 😊💙 . . I ran out of blue yarn near the end of the final diamond lace panel. At that point, I decided the shawl was large enough and did not do the final lace panel in the main colour (natural white). I attempted the stunning picot bind off twice and then realised two things...(1) the yarn I had chosen has heaps (and heaps) of drape and was not suitable for making picots and (2) I’m not really a picot person 😉 So I did a couple of rows in garter stitch and did a regular bind off. . . Fantastic pattern by @dominiquetrad in celebration of the @knittersguildnsw 2018 FibreFest in Singleton NSW at the end of October (we will be there as traders). . . Yarn: 4-ply baby alpaca/silk/linen (natural yarn base stocked by us here @feltfine ) with hand-dyed Superwash Merino/nylon by Tanya from @willowandthewisp . . #fibrefestshawl2018 #shawl #handknit #handknitshawl #imadethis #handmade #knit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knitters #fibrelove #feltfine #willowandthewisp
I ❤️ spinning scrappy batts! It’s a woolly lucky dip potpourri 🌈 I started spinning this yesterday at camp and my fingers have been itching to get back to it! . . #ashfordjoy2 #scrappybatt #spinningwheel #colour #handspunwool #handspun
I’ve spent the weekend at the Lake Keepit Camp, hosted by the fantastic folks from the Tamworth Spinners and Weavers group. The weekend started off with a bang on Friday evening with a massive hail storm and down pour (some much need precipitation for this region) and then settled into a lovely couple of days. Dyeing workshops, felting, demonstrations and lots and lots of crafting (and chatting!) all set in a stunning country landscape. And I finished my @dominiquetrad @knittersguildnsw Fibre Fest Shawl (more on that later 😊) . . #lakekeepit #camp #countrynsw #spin #weave #knot #crochet #rugpunch #punchembroidery #fibrelove #fibrefestshawl2018
We are proud to be an @ashford_wheels_looms dealer! We offer your choice of free FeltFine fibre with every Ashford purchase. I recent purchased an Ashford Joy 2 spinning wheel and love its portability and smooth action. Our youngest (aka Red Cheetah, who is nearly 7) loves to use it to make his own art yarn 😊❤️ Contact us with any questions or to place an order for any Ashford product. . . #ashfordwheelsandlooms #joy2 #ashfordjoy2 #spinning #weaving #handcraft #spun #weave #woolcraft #fibrelove #redcheetah
Batts! Similar to giant rolags, our batts are ideal for wet and dry felting projects and spinning! Did you know that we make all of our batts in-house on our very own 2.5-tonne carding machine? This means that our batts are of the highest standard because we control the quality. It also means that if our online store is showing “out of stock” for a batt you want, just shoot us a message and we can make one for you. Or if you are interested in a colour or fibre not currently listed, please contact us. . . #batts #woolbatts #batt #spin #felt #wetfelt #dryfelt #woolcraft #handcraft #slowcraft #wool #fibrelove

@amy.oxford Rug Punch Needles are back in stock! We’ve also got a **new** foundation fabric available: rug warp! This cotton fabric is heavier than monks cloth and is great for Punch Needling, Punch embroidery, Rug hooking and rug tufting. Unlike monks cloth, rug warp doesn’t have those white guide lines. Link in bio and search “rug warp”. . . Are you planning to offer a workshop with the Oxford Punch Needles?
