Our two STREAKY MERINO lines are among our most popular products. The Sugar Candy series are made from soft 19-micron Merino, ideal for projects that will be worn against the skin such as shawls and scarves. These are from Dyeing House Gallery in Italy, and include soft pastels as well as a few bolder colourways. The Ashland Bay Blends are 21.5-micron which is still considered to be a soft Fine Merino. Their blends are bolder with a lot more contrast of colours. We can’t decide which we like best so we continue to carry them both! Ideal for spinning or felting.


June 1 – John is heading to Kingston to vend at the ONTARIO HANDSPINNING SEMINAR June 3 and 4. A few people have contacted us to order things for pickup there. If you want to send an e-mail or call the shop it’s best to let us know before 4pm on Thursday, June 2. Alan will be home running the shop, so it will be business as usual.

We just got in a shipment of UNICORN POWER SCOUR (also their Fibre Wash and Fibre Rinse) in case you are needing to wash any greasy, raw fleeces. We will be bringing some to the Handspinning Seminar and it’s already posted in the shopping cart in the MORE Category. We have customers that swear this product does the best job of removing dirt and grease from raw fleeces of any kind, and it’s designed to work with normal hot tap water temperatures.

Other shows we will be attending this year include TWIST August 20-21 in Quebec, the WOODSTOCK FLEECE FESTIVAL October 15, and FIVE COUNTIES on September 17, being held in Kitchener this year.

Our SPIN-INS: for now , if you want to organize yourself and a couple of friends to come by for a Spin-In, just e-mail us in advance or call the shop and we will be happy to host! Saturdays work best for us.
