About Us

Our unique range of hand-dyed silk embroidery threads, speciality threads, silk ribbons, and fabrics provide a diversity of materials for collage work, hand stitching, crazy quilting, mixed media work, ribbon embroidery, and felting.

To complement our range of over 60 colours of hand-dyed threads, ribbons, and fabrics, we also offer a 3 stranded twisted Japanese silk thread in over 60 colours and a fine silk raffia in over 15 colours.

For felters, we have fine Merino hand-dyed wool tops and plain coloured wool tops in over 50 colours.

Our embellishments include an extensive range of sequins in a variety of styles and colours to inspire you to play even more.

The founder of Colour Streams, Robyn Alexander appreciated the style and flair that unusual embroidery threads could add to your textile arts. For over 20 years, Robyn crafted an extensive range of colours, in various thicknesses of silk embroidery thread and widths of silk embroidery ribbons and quite a few speciality threads. 

The varying width and thickness of these silk threads and ribbons provide great opportunities to create incredible texture, dimension, and perspective in your designs. Coupled with this, she developed a range of hand-dyed fabrics and a distinctive range of hand dyed yarns, wool felting supplies, and sequins to die for. 

Since acquiring Colour Streams in 2016, Christine Noske has been building on the traditions that Robyn created and continue to offer an extensive range of embroidery and textile art supplies. We are delighted to be now crafting over 60 hand-dyed variegated colours with further wonderful colour combinations being developed.

All Colour Streams' fabrics, threads, and ribbons are hand painted with fibre reactive dyes and washed many times to prevent dye running. Although, as with any commercially dyed silk, there is always the chance of slight bleeding with the very strong colours. 

Colour Streams textile arts and embroidery supplies and designs aim to inspire and ignite the textile artist in you - to help your imagination take flight and to ‘let the colour do the work while you play.’
