Merino is sometimes called the "Queen of Wool Breeds" because of its lovely, soft feel. Felters in particular embrace Merino because it felts quickly (compared to coarser breeds) and feels great against the skin. If there is any breed of sheep the average person knows the name of, it's Merino!
Continuing specials this month include:
Euroflax weaving yarns at 30% OFF

WATCH FOR OUR BOXING WEEK SPECIALS, which will be announced on December 26. The shop will also have extended hours that week. We will be closed on December 25 & 26 then open from Friday Dec. 27 through Tuesday Dec. 31 from 11am to 5pm. There will be a Spin-In day or two thrown in for extra measure (dates/time TBA) – a great way to escape the holiday chaos at home!
WHAT'S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
Alan just unpacked a box of wonderful HOUNDESIGN SPINDLES, including his Dervish, Lace and Russian (Tornado) spindles, plus a few of Dave's cool orifice threading hooks and nostepinnes. John has to photograph these and get them on the cart, but they are out in the shop if you happen to visit.
We're fairly well-stocked on wheels right now (for our tiny shop!) with a few more on the way. If you're thinking of getting somebody a spinning wheel for Christmas, don't despair — we may well have in stock exactly what you are wanting. Just drop an e-mail or give us a call.
Also just arrived is a big box of Canadian MOHAIR LOCKS, the fresh 2013 clipping. They should get posted on the cart shortly.
Wishing everyone a fantastic holiday, however you celebrate it. And don't stress yourself out TOO much making more gifts than is humanly possible!
