Our August long weekend hours are the same as usual: open Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 5pm and Sunday from noon to 4pm. We will be closed on Monday, August 7.
For AUGUST our fibre feature is
Ashford MERINO/SILK Top/roving
at 25% OFF!
We stock ten dyed streaky colourways as well as the natural white.
Click the links above, or look in the cart under Fibres>Dyed Roving & Top>Merino/Silk for the dyed ones, or under Fibres>Natural Roving & Top>Blends for the natural undyed.
Both IN-STORE and ONLINE
MERINO/SILK blends are luxurious to spin and also awesome for any method of felting. The silk is carried by the wool and wet or needle felts beautifully. If you like to dye fibre, try it with the natural white. The wool and silk will grab the dyes differently and give amazing streaky results.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
WE HAVE MOVED: Our new address and new local phone number are listed down below.
August 1 – We’ve had an incredibly busy past month in the shop. Summer is when many of our regular online customers drop by the store and it’s always fun to meet face-to-face. Being a tourist village we are open as usual and our summer hours are the same year-round hours that we always keep, listed below. 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!
John (The DyeGuy) is back at the kettles once again and stocking up on our own various dyed yarns. Tourist season is a big yarn sales time for us, so look for your favourites as well as some new colourways next time you are in the store.
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.
Summer is a good time to tackle washing greasy, raw fleeces from the spring shearing. We still have a good supply of UNICORN POWER SCOUR as well as some of their 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 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.

We are thrilled to be Dealers for Majacraft, Louet and Ashford spinning wheels, looms and other products.
