We carry twenty gorgeous, streaky colourways of this lovely and soft 19-micron Merino wool, made by the same mill that does the solid Fine Merino range we had on sale last month. If you’re looking for fibre to make a scarf or shawl, it’s hard to beat a 19-micron Merino whether you are a felter or a spinner.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
August 1 – We’ve had many visits this past month or two from online customers that happen to be in the area, so in case you are planning a visit to Niagara in the next while we would love to meet you and show you our shop. Just a reminder that our hours (posted down below) are year-round hours so if your visit will be on a regular open day, no need to call ahead and see if we will be open, because WE WILL! August is usually a pretty busy month in the shop and for online orders, as crafters stock ahead for the fall season. With that in mind we always try to get ahead of the game and order extra inventory, particularly for Corriedale, Merino and other felting supplies.
Our next vending show is in August, our second year at the TWIST FIBRE FESTIVAL in Quebec, August 22 & 23. This year we will have a more spacious double booth. The little village where the festival is held is about half way between Ottawa and Montreal on the north side of the Ottawa River, so if you live in driving distance it’s well worth a day trip. If you hate crowds, plan to go on the Sunday morning.
Summer is the time when many people do natural dyeing, often working outdoors with their kettles and vats. We are well stocked on dyes and mordants right now. If you come in the shop, check out the selection located in the antique architect drawers, they are all packed and ready to go! For those of you working with indigo we once again have a good supply of THIOUREA DIOXIDE, a chemical additive that allows for the indigo magic to happen.
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. We are thrilled to be Dealers for Majacraft, Louet and Ashford spinning wheels, looms and other products.
Our regular year-round Store Hours are:
- Thursday, Friday, Saturday — 11am to 5pm
- Sunday — 12 noon to 4pm
