ASHFORD ALPACA/MERINO is a gorgeous soft preparation that is a joy to spin and also felts very well. The alpaca will “bloom” and give a fuzzy finish to your project. They are streaky tone-on-tone blends in a lovely range of colours. The ratio is 30% Baby Alpaca / 70% Fine Merino.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
WE HAVE MOVED: Our new address and new local phone number are listed down below.
June 1 – we are well settled in to the new place now and enjoying the luxury of extra space to show more products and offer classes. If you’re looking for us, our new sign is not up yet but the brightly-painted spinning wheels beside the front sidewalk should help you to find us!
Just arrived…. KNITTING NEEDLES!! We’ve gone with the square KOLLAGE needles from Louet, in circular, double pointed and straight, as well as their SONIX round needles in circular. These are even made here in Canada! Currently at our shop only, not on the cart yet.
Spring is a time when many spinners purchase fresh raw fleeces. We’ve just got in a new shipment of UNICORN POWER SCOUR as well as the Unicorn Fibre Wash and Fibre Rinse. These are listed in the cart under MORE>Fibre Washing & Scouring. Developed for professional mills, Power Scour works great at regular household water heater temperatures. We have customers that swear it’s the best product they have ever used for removing the grease and dirt from raw sheep fleeces, but it also works well on any other animal fibre.
TO ORDER FOR PICKUP at the ONTARIO HANDSPINNING SEMINAR: you can order on our shopping cart, and select the “store pickup” shipping option. We will pack your order and bring it along with us to the show. Payment can be made the usual way through PayPal, or you can just select the “check/money order” payment option and pay there, a good plan if you think you might add some things to your order in person. At the show we will be able to take cash, Visa or Mastercard but unfortunately we’re not setup to do Interac debit sales. We are not currently showing on their site as a 2017 Vendor but we will indeed be there.
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.
THE FIBRE GARDEN is owned and operated by Alan McLean and John Valleau and it lives right on Main Street in historic 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, Louet and Ashford spinning wheels, looms and other products.

Please note: if you are using GPS to get here, our address might well pop up as Lincoln or as Jordan Station. The Village of Jordan is where we are. We’re about half way down the street between Cave Spring Winery and The Jordan House Pub, across the street from the museum.
For those in the area or within driving distance, we welcome you to visit our shop in person. Our friends from afar can enjoy online shopping with us.
