Welcome to Kathys Fibres


I am away at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo and have turned the order button off on my site. I will turn it back on when I return on Wednesday 24th July. My apologies for an inconvenience.

I am still contactable by email.

Thank you Kathy

 I love everything about fibres and dyeing so have combined the two crafts to bring you some wonderful products.

I have an extensive range of handpainted rovings, tussah silk tops and yarn plus other fibre goodies.

Come on in for a browse.

Feel free to ask any question that you may have, I will be only to happy to answer them for you.

Important Notice

I wish to thank all my customers who have supported me over the years ♥♥♥ Without you I would not still be here. Thank you :)


The Polwarth Project

Tops now available :)

I am pleased to that I have another bale of beautiful Wirreanda polwarth from Mt Crawford here in the Adelaide Hills on it's way to to Victoria for scouring and top making. Then I will be able to offer you the most beautiful Polwarth tops dyed and undyed, knowing their origin is only a few kms from my door. Also this time I will be having some blended with silk, quite excited about this :)


I now have my new beautiful Wirreanda polwarth and the silk blend as well which is divine. Now dyeing up some so keep a lookout on What's New
