Our AUGUST Feature is
Roving & Top
at 25% OFF
Both IN-STORE and ONLINE
There’s nothing quite like a touch of silk to add a special something to your project. We have natural blends with Merino, Blue-faced Leicester and Polwarth/Silk. The dyed blends are all 80% Merino/20% Tussah silk, which makes for a beautiful spin but consider these as well for FELTING. Silk by itself will not felt but the wool acts as a carrier and the silk goes along for the ride!
Last month we rejigged our natural/bare yarns to make new 1-Lb Value Packs available. Unfortunately there was an error in the formatting that made them all view only as “store pickup”. This has been fixed and they are indeed available for shipping now, in case you want to stock up for a summer dyeing project.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
AUGUST 7 – Alan had a great time at his weaving workshop last month and now has his new Louet Delta loom setup and ready to warp. John managed to get away to Edmonton for a week to visit family. We are starting to prepare for the big TWIST Fibre Festival in Quebec, August 23 and 24 and excited to be attending as a vendor for our first time.
Our SUMMER HOURS are the same as winter, we’re open year round, and hours are posted below. Jordan is plunk in the middle of the Niagara wine region and there is plenty to do during the summer, places to eat and stay nearby. Bring the family and go to the Falls! It’s just a half hour drive from here.
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.
Our regular year-round Store Hours are:
- Thursday, Friday, Saturday — 11am to 5pm
- Sunday — 12 noon to 4pm
