Kia Ora koutou.

In order to remain a responsible business, we will be following government direction and closing down during the COVID-19 lockdown.

You will still be able to place orders through our website, but we will not be sending any parcels or orders until after the lockdown has finished.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

We wish you and all the people in your bubble you the best for the lockdown.

Stay safe.

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.


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.


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.


We sell dyes for cottons, linen, silk, rayon, chenille for embroidery threads & quilting fabrics. See our Cotton Dyes page here.
