Woe are we! Trying to fit as much fibre into a small van as possible for felt::feutre! We leave Victoria early on Monday for the drive to Penticton and will be ready to set up first thing Tuesday morning at the Shatford Centre. Wish we could take two vans or a small train!
We’ve received masses of new stock and it’s ready to offer up to the felters participating in the symposium workshops and to those who drop by just to see the vendors’ marketplace. For felting fibres, we’ve all sorts of wool, wool blends, silk fibres and others. We have lots of felting ball brausers for wet felting and needles for needle felters.
We will certainly have Merino, Bergschaf, Maori, Gotland, some great, local Cotswold, Polwarth, Corriedale and Finnish. If we can do it, we’ll also have as many of these as possible: Falkland, Icelandic, Norwegian, Jacob, Shetland, South American, Welsh, Teeswater and Wensleydale. This will be a great opportunity for felters to find new fibre to experiment with on their next projects!
Chaotic’s Online Store will be closed for the week we’ll be away. We do not want our customers to be disappointed by having to wait until our return or, even worse, until we order replacement stock after our return. But, we will have access to email if you have questions or want to place an order that we complete upon our return.
Can’t make it to Penticton? Our next fibre event will be the Cowichan Fleece and Fibre Festival in Cobble Hill on Saturday, October 15th. And, locals are always welcome to email or call us to make an appointment to visit our home studio. Hope to see you soon!
