 Our NOVEMBER Feature
DYED MERINO Roving & Top

on sale at
 25% OFF


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.


November 8 – John has been crazy busy music directing for a theatre production in Niagara Falls, so apologies for the late sale feature announcement this month! We hope to get a newsletter out in the next couple of days or so.

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! There’s a second shipment due to arrive around the end of November containing the little metal Tahkli support spindles as well as cotton poonies. These are listed along with the Charkha wheels on our cart.
