Welcome to ORA Fabulous Fibres - the home of naturally beautiful yarn! 

At ORA we love natural yarns and have a large beautiful collection including veganrecycled and fair trade.

Our plant based range includes eco-friendly and sustainable raffia yarn, banana silk yarn, pineapple fique, hemp, coconut, ramie and bamboo fibres.  Our beautiful recycled yarns repurpose waste materials from textile production including sari silk, sari cotton, linen and wool.

We support a number of fair trade and sustainable partnerships with communities in developing countries. 

ORA love artisan yarns and stock one of the largest ranges of Habu Textiles and Daruma Yokota yarns where small mills craft fascinating yarns often using traditional techniques.
We are fully committed to lessening our impact on the environment and are well on the way to totally eliminating plastics from our business. All orders are packed in a complimentary, unbleached calico drawstring bag - which is perfect for storing your projects - and we proudly use compostable, reusable and zero-waste mailers.

 About Me

ORA Fabulous Fibres was started by Debbie to satisfy her endless fascination for yarns of every colour and texture. I love to be surrounded by them, to touch them and just to look at them like a child in a lolly shop!

I have loved craft, in particular crochet, knitting and sewing (hand and machine), since I was a young girl picking up my passion from my mum who was always busy making something.  

We are very lucky to live close to the coast of Perth, Western Australia where the sun shines brightly, the sand is white and the skies are blue!

I am married to a wonderful man who lifts me up every single day and have somehow helped to produce the 2 best children (now in their late twenties) in the world! 

For three years ORA was a hobby until 2020 when I left a full time career in Information Technology to focus on ORA and creative pursuits on a full time basis. I thank the stars every day for the opportunity that I have been given and the fabulously talented creatives that I am lucky to connect with through this fantastic creative community. 


Two words sum me up - HAPPY and GRATEFUL!
