BLUE-FACED LEICESTER is categorized as a LONGWOOL breed. Though not as soft as a short, finewool breed such as Merino, it feels reasonably soft and silky to the hand, and has a lovely ivory-white natural colour. BFL is easy to dye before or after being spun. Wet FELTING qualities are average, around the same amount of time and effort as Corriedale.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
WE HAVE MOVED: Our new address and new local phone number are listed down below.
October 4 – Our WINTER HOURS are the same as usual, listed below. If you’re looking for our store, our new sign is not up yet but the brightly-painted spinning wheels beside the front sidewalk should help you to find us!
A shipment of Unicorn products just arrived. Our Unicorn Fibre Rinse, Power Scour and Fibre Wash are all currently in good supply.
We have all of our natural/bare undyed yarns on display in the shop, and usually have a good supply of most. They have really increased in sales this past few months at the new store. We also have nearly all of our Natural Dye supplies in good stock now, including both natural and pre-reduced/instant INDIGO.
Recently 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.
Sunday, October 22 is our next SPIN-IN DAY and it’s great to once again be hosting these. Spin-Ins are free, just bring your wheel or drop spindle. We have plenty of fibre or bring your own. Spin-Ins are social occasions and we will provide coffee, tea and cookies. Share your interest in spinning with others, and maybe pick up some tips and tricks at the same time! We have plenty of room for drop-ins but if you could call the shop ahead (number is below) or drop us an e-mail ( email@example.com ) to let us know you’re coming that will help us to plan ahead a little. We hope to see you here!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
