The Fibre Garden

September 1 — once again any threat of a postal strike this past week seems to have been resolved. Shipping will continue as usual.

Our September fibre feature is
Louet NORTHERN LIGHTS wool top/roving

25% OFF!

Choose from 17 dyed colourways
in 20g or 1/2-Lb packs.

Click the link above, or look on the
cart under Fibres>Dyed Roving & Top>Wool>Northern Lights


The Northern Lights series is unique, featuring short repeating sections of contrasting colours that have been printed on a special machine, almost giving the impression of a hand-painted roving. These are fairly narrow slivers of combed wool top, narrow enough to almost consider as pencil roving, made from a blend of wool breeds with a handle similar to Corriedale. These are very easy to spin but also perfect for any sort of felting. They’re also awesome as wild & crazy THRUMS for knitting mittens, hats and other winter garments.



September 1 – we both made it out to the Twist Festival in August, and enjoyed meeting so many of our online customers there! It was a busy event and we certainly hope to be back again next year.

We’ve restocked on the amazing, shiny 2/8 TENCEL Weaving Yarns and the cart has them listed. John has also finally fixed our listings of DYEGUY Yarns which are now up-to-date with our actual inventory. Some of our SOCKY-TALKY yarns will be going on vacation to the Kitchener Knitter’s Fair on September 10. Look for them in the GREY HERON booth along with kits Karen is making up from our Wash-it Merino Sport yarns, custom-dyed just for her.

The next shows we will be attending are the WOODSTOCK FLEECE FESTIVAL October 15, and FIVE COUNTIES on September 17, being held in Kitchener this year. We are happy to bring your order to either of these: just select “store pickup” as your shipping method and try to order by the Wednesday immediately before the show.

Did you know we accept E-transfers for order payment for all Canadian regions? To do this (instead of using PayPal) just select the “check/money order” payment option during checkout, then send the E-transfer to info@fibregarden.ca and then send us an e-mail as well with the answer to the security question you have selected. This option is great for those that don’t use credit cards but do online banking. Unfortunately E-tranfers cannot be sent from outside of Canada.

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.

THE FIBRE GARDEN is owned and operated by Alan McLean and John Valleau and it lives in our historic home in Jordan Village, Ontario, Canada. We are in the heart of Niagara Wine Country and there are plenty of things to see and do in the village and surroundings.

The shop carries a very wide selection of natural breed-specific rovings, dyed rovings and top, weaving and knitting yarns (many dyed right here by THE DYEGUY), felting supplies, dyes, natural dyes & mordants, spinning wheels, drop spindles, and other fibre gadgets. We are thrilled to be Dealers for MajacraftLouet and Ashford spinning wheels, looms and other products.

Our regular year-round Store Hours are:

  • Thursday, Friday, Saturday — 11am to 5pm
  • Sunday — 12 noon to 4pm

THE FIBRE GARDEN is located at 3818 Main Street, Jordan, Ontario, Canada, L0R 1S0. info@fibregarden.ca

Please note: if you are using GPS to get here, our address might well pop up as Lincoln or as Jordan Station. The Village of Jordan is where we are. Right next door to the Cave Spring Winery building.

For those in the area or within driving distance, we welcome you to visit our shop in person. Our friends from afar can enjoy online shopping with us. Just click on the SHOP ONLINE! button on the top menu bar. We have the majority of our fibres, spinning wheels, spindles, looms, gadgets and tools loaded for you to see.
