Chaotic Open House and Fibre Sale

Someone suggested that we should have an open house and fibre sale for Chaotic Fibres so that’s just what we did last Sunday! Local guilds plus groups of felters and spinners were invited, and we were delighted with the response. Not being sure who may show up and how many, we spiked our invitation with a platter of freshly baked chocolate chunk cookies, some hot chocolate for the cool weather and a door prize of some popular products from the Chaotic collection.

Congratulations to Rosalie B., the winner of the door prize draw, and a huge thank you to all our visitors who made the special effort to find us. We appreciate your support and your business!

Will we do this again? We will, perhaps two or three open houses over the coming year. It was great fun and so rewarding to see so many smiling and appreciative faces. If you would like us to send you an email once we set the date for our next open house, let us know by emailing us at chaoticfibres@gmail.com. Come and join the fun!

New treasures galore at Chaotic Fibres for spinners and felters!

Just in from one of our European suppliers … a fresh batch of popular Bonsai Sprayers for wet felters!

Are you tired of wetting your projects with the old hand spray misting bottle you salvaged from an emptied Windex sprayer? Bonsai Sprayers make wet felting easy and efficient. Simply squeeze the soft rubber bulb to draw water or a soap/water solution then gently squeeze to give a perfect distribution over the project. Bonsai Sprayers make the process so easy on your hand and arm muscles. They’re a must have tool for felters!

Chaotic Fibres Felting Pad
Felting Pads 20cm by 30cm

This shipment also included new felting pads and felting needles as promised in our last blog, plus lots of great wool and other fibres for both felters and spinners.

Are you just starting out with felting? We will soon be offering new toolkits for both wet felting and needle felting. Our wet felting toolkits will include a Bonsai Sprayer, a sampling of great fibres chosen specifically for wet felting along with some interesting, special fibre for textural accents. The needle felting toolkits will include a felting pad, three needles and an assortment of excellent needle felting fibres. Watch our Online Store over the couple of weeks for news about these kits and get ready to have some fun!

Wild Space Dyed Top - Mercury

What else is new in the storehouse at Chaotic? It’s been a busy week! We also received a very large shipment from Britain the other day. Sharon is busy unpacking some wild and colourful Space Dyed Wool Top, dyed Shetland Top in seven different colours as well as black and grey, Gotland Top, wool nepps, Tussah Silk Top and more! For spinners, the 18/19 micron extra fine Merino Top is beautifully soft and the colours are luxuriant. We now have lots of Merino, including extra fine top in white for dyeing.

Are you looking for prefelt? Have a look at Felting Supplies in our store! Nuno felters, especially, will drool over our collection of 17 colours of Merino prefelt from this shipment.

All this will help us keep up with the incredible interest in felting and the demand for felting products as well as challenge our spinners with some great fibres for their next projects.

Silk Yarns ready for Fibres West

We are packed to the rafters! Getting ready for Vancouver’s Fibres West in less than 2 weeks. We are still receiving some last minute shipments from Europe, preparing, packaging, pricing and loading the new products on our Online Store.

Peacock Banana Silk Yarn
Peacock Banana Silk Yarn

We have some unusual new yarns for knitters! Our new Banana Silk Yarn is luscious! Although there’s really no silk in these, if you know Banana Fibre, you will know that it looks, feels and shimmers like silk. Have a look at the iridescent qualities of Aqua or Peacock to see what I mean. There’s a reason that banana fibre has been wildly popular for over 400 years with Japanese kimono makers!

Over a dozen colours of Sari Silk Yarns
Sari Silk Yarn

We also have Sari Silk Yarn, which has many of the same qualities and hand feel as Banana Silk Yarn. This yarn is hand spun by women in smaller Indian villages after leftover silk threads are collected from sari mills. The colours are striking and unique, a result of stray threads of vibrant colour migrating into the yarn during spinning.

For amazing character and texture, our brand new Sari Silk Ribbon Yarns are quite something. The loose threads along the edges plus the varying width of the ribbon sections give this ribbon yarn great character. These are all solid colours with tinges of complementary tones. We hope these draw lots of applause at #FibresWest!

This will be our first time at Fibres West so we’ll be taking lots of wool, silk, specialty fibres – even some felting supplies like our new Bonsai Sprayers, felting pads and Merino prefelt. We are already getting lots of interest for the great variety of wools we offer from different breeds of sheep, one of the best selections we have found anywhere. Come visit us at the Cloverdale Exhibition Grounds Agriplex during the 7th annual Fibres West for #feltingsupplies, #specialtyyarns and #spinningfibres!
