Both IN-STORE and ONLINE
THE FLEECES are now PORTIONED!
It's that time of year when we portion up this year's remaining Raw New Zealand Fleeces into 1-Lb bags. There's a nice selection of Merino, Polwarth, Romney, English Leicester and Lincoln in a range of colours. If those hefty 9-Lb Lincolns were a bit too big for you, here's your chance to get smaller amounts.
WHAT'S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
We just received a shipment of our Socky-Talky fingering weight yarn done up in half-sized 2 oz skeins, which John will be dyeing up soon. We're calling them HALF PINTS. These will offer the sock knitter a chance to get some extra yardage of a colourway for those big-footed guys, or to knit socks from several colours without having quite so much yarn leftover at the end. Perfect for stripes and/or contrasting toes & heels. These will be in a wide range of colourways, including some new ones.
A couple of new products are arriving around mid-month from ASHFORD. We're testing out their 1 kg bags of MILL ENDS, which should be a nice assortment of different fibres and blends suitable for spinning or felting. There is also a nice supply of WASHED ENGLISH LEICESTER locks coming, for those that want them for Santa beards, felting, doll hair, spinning and so forth. Same as our Rainbow Leicester locks except they are natural white.
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 Majacraft, Schacht, Louet and Ashford spinning wheels, looms and other products.
