Our APRIL fibre SALE feature is Ashford Merino/Silk
at 25% OFF!
Choose from 10 colourful blends, or natural white.
Merino/silk blends from Ashford are gorgeous and streaky with shiny white silk contrasting against various tones of dyed wool. They spin like butter! Felters love them too, particularly for the Nuno felting workshops we host here at the store. Use these for against-the-skin projects or wherever you might want that special pop of silk in your project.

WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
WE MOVED in 2017: Our new address and new local phone number are listed down below.
April 2/19 – we have reorganized our natural wool listings on the cart. It was time to pull our Canadian Rustic Roving selections together into one place. Lots of our customers want Canadian product and it makes sense to have them easy to find.
We’ve just got in a large shipment of BREED WOOL (listed in a new category Fibres>Natural Roving & Top>Wool – Imported Top & Roving) so if you have been patiently waiting for Manx Loaghtan, Shetland, Icelandic and others, you may well find them back in stock.
Another new fibre for us is DYED VISCOSE in a number of lovely shades. Hopefully that gets listed on our cart in a few days. Viscose is the “original” rayon, made from wood pulp so it’s a man-made fibre from natural sources. It compares to Tencel and viscose-Bamboo in softness, lustre and use. Viscose has lovely drape in spun yarns, by itself or in blends. And it makes for a lustrous felting embellishment.
We have FREE CANADIAN GROUND SHIPPING on Ashford equipment over $100 in value, same for Majacraft and Louet products. Please note that the cart might show these items as STORE PICKUP but we will indeed ship them across the country.
Combination orders for tools & equipment over $100 plus fibre or other non-free shipping products will be charged shipping for the non-free portion of the order. That’s because we are often shipping the equipment directly from our supplier and other items from here at our store.
Louet has announced some major changes to how they provide spinning and weaving equipment. We now have to order these products directly from Holland, so wait times will likely be 6 to 8 weeks for looms, spinning wheels, bobbins, etc. that we might not regularly stock at the store. We will let you know regarding wait times, just drop us an e-mail if you have any questions.
Our SPRING & SUMMER 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!
Our next SPIN-IN DAY will be Sunday, April 28 during regular store hours, drop-in style. 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.
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.
