Fibre Garden is a rare find for people who enjoy anything related to fibre art. They supply beautiful hand-dyed, natural yarns as well as various kinds of spinning fibres, felting supplies, carding boards and combs, and weaving looms and accessories. Alan McLean and John Valleau are the own/operators and they are very knowledgeable and helpful for those of us who are just learning about the wonders of fibre art. They are also very active in the Niagara Handweavers & Spinners Guild.
Here is an excerpt from The Fibre Garden web site:
“At The Fibre Garden our yarn focus is specifically hand-dyed, handspun or bare/natural yarns. We don’t carry the usual wide selection that a commercial yarn shop might have. Ours are made in small batches, by hand. John is The Dyeguy, and responsible for most of the yarn dyeing while Alan is a much more prolific spinner and, as The Battman, maker of blended batts.
Our bare yarns can, of course, be used directly for knitting for those that prefer “au natural”. These are the same ones we use for the various Dyeguy lines. If you are a dyer, there are some real beauties here to play with. Most of our yarns are proudly made in Canada!”
Here are a few pictures I took when I visited them on Saturday. It’s a real gem in Niagara. If you visit Jordan Village be sure to drop in.
