Welcome to the home of FibreTron

Purple Sprouting is proud to play host to FibreTron for a fourth year. Established in 2019, FibreTron is Hamilton's very own yarn and fibre festival. Bringing together raw material producers, independent yarn dyers, knitwear designers and fibre crafters.

Last year we welcomed 40 vendors from all around Aotearoa, New Zealand. 


If you're a keen knitter or crocheter or passionate about spinning or weaving or any other fibre craft then this is the place for you.
