Nestled in the heart of Millarville valley is The Fibre Ark, home to our flock of sheep and alpacas. We are dedicated to providing high-quality products, kits & supplies. 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 wooly 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.
Our farm is a sanctuary for fibre animals where their purpose is to grow beautiful fibre! Over the years our flock has blossomed to around 45 sheep, primarily Shetlands, but includes Blue Faced Leicester, Finn, and Wensleydale sheep, as well as 5 Alpacas...Nativity, Gold, Frankincense, Myrrh, and Star.
