WHAT'S HAPP'NIN ?













What's Not happening ??
Well, I'm not getting enough sleep due to ritual late night summer mystery reading, but I digress...
Whew, how did mid July get here so fast?
Long time no post?... here's why:

The Dye Pots are on full tilt..... both natural and otherwise.
(Here are some of the Black-Eyed Susans that I had saved (frozen) from last years crop. They are in day #2 of simmering.)
We have a great new selection of London-Wul dyed Polwarth Top and wool locks.

Our newest Dye Garden is in bloom and we have added interpretive labels and dyed yarn samples for visitors to peruse.

Our Angora Fibre has gone off to the mill and will return as the fabulous London-Wul "Dream Come True" Angora/ Alpaca blend that we all know and love...... ahh feel the love.


We have implemented a new equipment rental program for those of you who are interested in trying out a spinning wheel, drum carder or rigid heddle loom.

I am almost finished carding/blending and 1/2 way through spinning Lolly's (7lb yikes!) fleece for "Le Tour de Fleece".

The studio is a buzz with custom orders (lots of dog hair spinning on cue !) and wearable art production!


We are booking fast for this Fall's continuation of our Trade Convention guest Program. If you should happen to have a convention up and coming in the greater Moncton region be sure to check out the entertaining (and educational) hands-on program that we offer to participant's guests. We had so much fun with this program last year that we have been planning excitedly to continue on with even more surprises!

Most of all we have been unbelievably fortunate to have had so many of the world's best visitors to London-Wul this year! A special thanks to all of those who have spent time with us this summer and a warm welcome to all who wish to come!
