Choose from solid colours by Ashford or Dyeing House Gallery in Italy, or streaky Sugar Candy Merino from DHG and Color Fusion from Ashland Bay.

Merino is by far the most popular Fine Wool breed with fibre artists. For spinners and felters making garments for against-the-skin wear the softness of the wool is a huge deciding factor. Felters also know that Merino felts very quickly and that can be a huge time saver, especially on larger projects.


December 2 – it’s been a bit crazy around here the past few weeks! Alan injured his leg (snapped a tendon) while out walking our dog Mabel, and had to have surgery. He’s going back into the office now, but can’t drive since it was his right leg and the splint has to stay on for another month or so. If you see him hobbling around the shop with a walker, that would be why.

John’s musical theatre stuff is over now until the New Year, so we want to try to get back to hosting SPIN-INS, we miss them! See below for the new days and times, we hope many of you will want to swing by this winter to meet other spinners in the region.

If you want to try spinning cotton the way that Gandhi did it, check out our Mahatma Book Charkha wheels that recently arrived from India! We also got in those little metal Tahkli support spindles and cotton poonies are on the way. These are listed along with the Charkha wheels on our cart.

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.
