Nestled in the heart of Millarville valley is The Fibre Ark Sheep Sanctuary, home to our flock of sheep and alpacas. We are dedicated to providing high-quality products, kits, supplies & patterns. The bulk of wool we use comes from our own animals, raised only for their fibre fleeces which grow to about 5 inches in length and are shorn once or twice a year. Our woolly flock is well suited to the beautiful (although cold at times!) Canadian Rocky Mountain Foothills, and are lovingly cared for, living happy & long (many are in their teens), productive wool-growing lives! We were drawn to Shetland sheep as they have wonderful, spunky personalities, a resilient outlook, and gorgeous fleeces. Shetland sheep wool comes in a rainbow of natural colours, it's fine enough to make some of the most intricate lace shawls, and strong enough to hold its shape when felted without the need for a metal armature. Our fleeces are processed at the local (Central Alberta) Mill, and supplemental wool is sourced from within Canada, Ashford (NZ), and a Mill in Yorkshire (UK).
Felting is very easy to learn and requires minimal supplies. Wool fibre is fashioned into basic shapes or placed flat to make a painting, then gently poked with a special felting needle which entangles the fibres together. Each felted character has their own handmade personality. Enjoy creating one for yourself or give as a unique gift.
