We often recommend Corriedale wool for beginning spinners, as the length of the fibres makes it much easier to learn with than shorter, slippery fibres such as Merino. Many of our felting customers love it as well, particularly needle felters making little animals or other 3-D figures. It’s a good-value fibre in a wide range of colours. Corriedale is not as soft as Merino but for projects that won’t be worn against the skin, that should not be a problem.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
October 1 – Fall certainly does pick up so far as it being a big crafting season, and we are well stocked on most products with more coming in all the time.
Recent arrivals: a whole whack of Pulled Silk and dyed Silk Noils in a rainbow of colours. Also check out new listings in the cart for more colours of our 19-micron Fine Merino top, Prefelt and dyed Tussah Silk top.
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.
The next show we will be attending is the WOODSTOCK FLEECE FESTIVAL October 15. We are happy to bring your order with us: 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 email@example.com 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.
