Fleece Artist Yarn
Fleece Artist was established in 1978, just next door to the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design to supply fellow textile artists with natural fibres. Over time weavers and kntters demanded better colours than were commercially available so they took to dyeing these themselves. Today Fleece Artist is a small family run company dedicated to dyeing breed specific fibres such as Blue Face Leicester, fine Kid Mohair, Merino and other fuzzy beasts. Their dye artists are NSCAD grads with an eye for craft and colour. Their goal is to move beyond colour, to showcase the natural qualities of the yarn and thus enlivening your hand made projects.
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.
