Chaotic Fibres featuring Extra Fine Merino Minis at felt::feutre

Do you have a felting project in mind but need a bit of colour? Our Extra Fine Merino Minis are perfect for needle and wet felters wanting deliciously soft fibre and a wide colour range to increase their stash. Each mini is a small, 20g nugget for only $2.25. The colours are also available in 100g for $10.00 each. Our Extra Fine Merino colours are pure and stable so felting projects come alive with this exceptional fibre.

DHG extra fine merino for felting from Chaotic Fibres Extra Fine Merino is spectacular! We currently stock 30 colours, ranging from sultry and mysterious Fog to the uplifting and lively Caipirinha. This fibre is rated as 19 microns so it’s as soft and silky as fresh warm custard – almost edible too! To compare, coarse wool from Devon and Massam rate as 40 – 60m and 38 – 44m respectively while the popular Corriedale rates as 25 – 31m so you can see why this Merino is described as extra fine!

Our Italian supplier has an international reputation for its sensitive stewardship and sustainable environmental practices in the dyeing and other production work it completes. Fibre industries go back a long way, over 600 years, in this small Italian city, and our supplier’s family fibre business does as well. They know what they’re doing: they’re currently dyeing about 12 billion kilograms of fibre each year. Yes, we have confidence!

We created these Merino Minis especially with Felt::Feutre in mind, as we will be featured as one of four anchor vendors at this international felting symposium in a couple of weeks. If you’re in the Penticton area, come and see us any day at the Okanagan School of the Arts from Tuesday, the 20th until late Sunday, the 25th. Our sales venue will be open in Room 205 in the Shatford Centre from 8:00am until 6pm.
