Our MAY fibre feature is
ASHFORD CORRIEDALE Top/roving
at 25% OFF!
Click the links above, or look in the cart under Fibres then either Dyed Roving & Top or Natural Roving & Top in the wool subcategory of either.
Both IN-STORE and ONLINE
ASHFORD CORRIEDALE WOOL is hands-down our number one selling line. Corriedale is less expensive than Merino, but it’s not as soft. This is not so much a problem if you’re making needle-felted creations such as animals or landscape pictures. It’s also a great choice for beginning spinners, for those learning to card and blend colours or for non-wearable or outer-garment projects.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
WE HAVE MOVED: Our new address and new local phone number are listed down below.
May 1 – a week or so ago we had our very first felting workshop, making felted birdhouses. It went very well, and we love having the extra room now at the new place to offer workshops and classes.
Our next workshop is on Sunday, May 28 from 1 to 4pm. This is a wet felting workshop suitable for beginners making a HAT or TEA-COSY with local felter and teacher Chris Liszak. The cost is $40 (plus HST) per person, plus materials that you can choose at the class. We have space for 4 to 6 participants. Just drop us an e-mail or call the shop for more details, or to register. Bring a tea pot, your head or head measurements to make a hat.
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..
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.
