Teri Dyes will be closed from 19 April – 28 April 2019. This is to allow me to spend time with my children over the school holidays, and to attend the upcoming Creative Fibre Festival (https://www.creativefibre.org.nz/event/creative-fibre-festival-2019/). We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Welcome to Teri Dyes. We sell dyes for cotton, for animal fibres and for flax.
We retail dyes to the craftspeople of New Zealand – weavers, spinners and carders, felters and quilters, silk-workers, kete-makers, flower-makers and flax workers. If we can, we assist customers who want items dyed. We publish introductory guides. And we sell basic chemicals needed for dyeing wool, silk and cotton using our dyes.
We supply individuals, guilds, groups, training institutes and a handful of retailers.
DYES FOR FLAX
The dyes that we sell for flax are called Phormalans. We do the mixing, bottling and labelling – we are the supplier, and own the brand name. See our Flax Dyes page here.
DYES FOR ANIMAL FIBRES
The two ranges of dyes for wools and silks that Teri Dyes sells are called (i) Acid Dyes) and (ii) Fibre Reactive Dyes. Acid dyes are chosen mostly by those who want to change the colour of animal fibre from existing shade A to new shade B and where the evenness of the new colour is important. See our Animal Fibre Dyes page here.
DYES FOR COTTON
We sell dyes for cottons, linen, silk, rayon, chenille for embroidery threads & quilting fabrics. See our Cotton Dyes page here.
