Our suppliers

These are some of the places we source our food and other supplies from, both locally and from elsewhere in the Highlands of Scotland and beyond.


Fibrecrafts sell most things crafty, so are great if you are buying lots of different items, as this can cut down your postage bill, especially if you live in the Highlands!  They have a good selection of natural dye materials and their starter dye kits are good for beginners, as they have a little bit of everything (not so keen on the chrome though).

World of Wool

I get most of our needle felting needles from World of Wool as well as any extra coloured fleece I might need. They offer discounts if you buy in bulk. I like them as they donated lots of fleece to a project I was part of.
