Our MARCH Feature is
DYED TUSSAH SILK TOP
at 25% OFF
Spinners and felters love to add luxurious silk to their projects! New felters are sometimes surprised to discover that silk can be blended with wool for their felting projects. For wet felting, keep the wool percentage at 70 to 80% and the silk will just go along for the ride. Or use it right on top as a surface embellishment for wet, needle or Nuno felted projects. We carry a large line of beautiful dyed colours, from Dyeing House Gallery in Italy.
Both IN-STORE and ONLINE

WHAT'S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
March 4 - Alan made it back from his vacation to southern India and Sri Lanka. Included in the tour was a chance to see silk and cotton weaving being done in the homes of the actual weavers, which is apparently how it often works over there. He brought some beautiful fabrics back as well.
We're well stocked on most fibres at the moment, with more shipments arriving each week. John is WAY behind on adding new products to the cart, but hopes to get on top of that during March. Look for the return of Ashford Silk/Merino blends, the new Ashford Alpaca/Merino blends and return of Louet Northern Lights printed top, packed in small packs especially for felters. Also look for new selections of our Canadian Rustic Rovings – a beautiful batch of natural-coloured Romney in particular, in brown or grey. We grabbed all we could get!
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.
