THE FIBRE GARDEN opened its doors on September 15, 2009 in our home in Jordan Village. Alan McLean and John Valleau are both spinners and knitters and John is the creator of THE DYEGUY™ hand-dyed yarns and fibres, done here in our home studio. Our dog Miss Rusty is the official customer greeter and there is no need to fear her when you visit. Our home shop carries a wide range of spinning fibres, including an outstanding selection of breed-specific wool rovings. We try to get our hands on anything and everything that would interests spinners from the beginner to the advanced, from the traditional-yarn maker to the novelty-yarn fanatic. We’re proud to have a selection of beautiful hand-spun yarns in our shop for knitters, crocheters and weavers. Dyes are a passion for us too, including the many interesting types of natural dye products and mordants. In addition to spinning wheels we carry drop spindles, hand cards, niddy-noddies and other gadgets. We’re able to order looms, wheel accessories and parts from Ashford, Louet and Majacraft. If your interest lies in needle felting, rug hooking or another fibre art, please just ask us about stocking the products that you need and we will do our best to bring them in especially for you. The Fibre Garden is proudly Canadian, and we love to feature creations by Canadian artists. If you are a hand spinner, weaver, carder, or dyer looking for an outlet for your products, please contact us and let us know what you have!

FRIENDLY, very well stocked store and VERY knowledgeable staff. You always feel welcome and that you are appreciated. There is every type of spinning tool here from prep and dyestuffs, to fibre and handspun yarns. Monthly Spin-ins are a blast. Their hand dyed yarns are beautiful and there is a nice selection of wheels. I drive 2 hrs just to go there and it's worth it!
This is the greatest place! Customer service is outstanding... if they don't have it, they will get it. Dye questions? Not a problem as they are very knowledgeable about this subject. If you need a fibre fix... this is the place to go. With so much to choose from, if you leave empty handed it will be your own fault. Gotta love this shop in Jordan!
