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 our customers demanded better colours than were commercially available so we took to dyeing these ourselves. Today, we are a small family run company dedicated to dyeing breed specific fibres such as Blue Face Leicester, fine Kid Mohair, Merino and other fuzzy beasts. Our dye artists are NSCAD grads with an eye for craft and colour. Our goal is to move beyond colour, to showcase the natural qualities of the yarn and thus enlivening your hand made projects.
