Colours

Seeing a collection of Fleece Artist kits together can be overpowering to the knitter unfamiliar with their products. The amazing combinations of hand-dyed colours in each kit is beautiful on it's own, but when you see a group of kits together, the explosion of colour is takes your breath away!



Camilla Valley Farm is pleased to be able to offer a series of distinct knitting kits from this Canadian company. Fleece Artist was established 25 years ago to supply fellow textile artists with natural fibres. Over this time their collection of products has grown and they now hand-dye many colourways in silks, wools, kid mohair, alpaca, cashmere and other fibers.
