Outback Fibers, a leading source of felting fibers for fiber artists, is pleased to provide a major benefit for our wonderful customers.

Due to our sourcing initiatives in 2013, we are able to provide a major price reduction for all our 18.5 micron Superfine Merino Top. It is now priced at the same level as our 22 micron Merino Top. View the New Merino Wool Page.

There will be a gradual transition from our fine 22-micron merino top to a SUPERFINE 18.5 micron merino for our full line of colors.  Our first shipment of 20 superfine colors will begin to be merged into current stocks.  

Outback Fibers is located in Colorado and specializes in supplying fiber artists with the finest in silk and wool for felting.  We supply Merino wool roving, wool batts, silk roving, felting kits, quilt embellishment products, and other wool products to felting, nuno felting, and spinning artists throughout North America.

Outback Fibers is also a premier source of products and information for the felting artist interested in Nuno felting, surface embellishment with silk fibers, needle felting, laminated felt, thin felt and using pre-felts.

Are you new to  felting?  You may want to purchase our Outback Felting Kit.  It has everything you need for learning the basics of the ancient art of felting.

Looking for Felting Instructions? We have them... from Basic to Advanced. Look at the new Beginner's Feltmaking videos.

Profusion colorsOutback Fibers imports Needled Prefelts from Australia.  This felting fabric is the most innovative product on the market and is made from Extrafine Merino (20 microns) finely needled into pre-felt yardage, approximately 60" wide and 80" long, yet weighing only a few ounces.  Use a single sheet for a gossamer-weight felt, or layer it, cut it, collage it. Use it with a fabric base or use it alone. Eliminates tedious lay-out time and produces a fine and even finished felt. Need longer lengths?  We can do it.

Profusion ColorsWe currently carry two brands of the prefelt--Outback Profusion and Felbi Needled Prefelts.  They are found on the Outback Profusion page.

Outback Fibers
Merino wool roving fiber for felting and spinning.
We stock 72 glorious colors of 100% merino wool fiber plus additional wool blends. We sell our wool fiber to a large number of beginning and experienced felters and spinners all over North America. We also stock wool batts for felting in six colors (Merino - Corriedale blend)

ExtraFine / Superfine Wool Roving 

Extrafine / Superfine Wool Roving fibers are beautifully dyed and nuanced to provide stunning colors to use in your project.  Selected especially for nuno felting, these fine micron fibers will migrate easily through silk gauze and 5mm habotai silk fabric.

 

Superfine wool is designated below 19 microns. These "Superfine" wools are from 18 to 19.5 microns.  As such they bridge designation between superfine and extra-fine.  They are a unique addition to our wool tops product offerings.
