TOUR NEW BRUNSWICK

.... special thanks to New Brunswick tourism for noting London-Wul Fibre Arts, [Canada's Economusee (working museum) of Hand Spinning] as one of this province's best places to visit!

Check out http://www.tourismnewbrunswick.ca/ for your guide to the spectacular province of New Brunswick. You owe yourself a visit!

Here's what New Brunswick has to say about
London-Wul:

@ the Economuseum: London Wul – Feel the Warm Fuzzies…

Take those made-with-love woolen socks your Gran knit you. Add in a splash of modern technique, cross with an artist’s fine eye and sprinkle lightly with on-trend fashion. The result? Fibre arts from London Wul in Dieppe.

Much more than a simple shop, London Wul allows you the chance to visit a natural dye garden, spinning museum and gallery. You can even watch as the fibres are prepped, dyed and spun. Treat yourself to something cozy – or something pointy if hand-turned knitting needles are more your speed.
