Where can I find natural, preferably organic, supplies for crafting? Stuff like unspun wool, yarn, cottons... I just have no idea where to begin to find the supplies to use! Hobby Lobby doesn't exactly have an overabundant supply of stuff like this, at least, mine doesn't. ;-) I'm hoping to make a bunch of Waldorf-inspired toys for my kids. In my perfect world, I use non-toxic paints and dyes. I hear that they have plant-based paints and dyes, how do I find those?

I like using these kinds of materials too and I've had the best luck finding materials like that online. Sometime I can find a mainstream brand that has stuff and then I know what to look for in my local art and craft store. (I was recently looking for water soluble oil paints and discovered that there was a mainstream brand that makes a water soluble oil paint line was highly rated by a lot of artists and my local craft store had it!) In terms of cotton, I just did a search of this forum about a week ago to find sources of organic cotton jersey; I haven't ordered it yet (I'm trying to calculate how much I need), so I can't give a personal recommendation, but I'm looking forward to trying.
I'm looking forward to hearing from others on this topic because it's great to have more resources for these kinds of materials.
