As of late 2023, Dominion Fleece & Fibre is on hiatus.

The shop originally was born to foster the Alberta fibre shed by purchasing wool from local sheep producers at a much higher rate than what they could get from the Wool Co-op, which pays cents per pound. I connected with many amazing local farmers and made dozens of visits to working livestock farms in the province. Life has changed though, and with the growth of our family, I am unable to currently keep up with purchasing, skirting, cleaning, and sending wool to the mill.

This shop will be changing in the time to come, although I’m unsure what that change will yet be. If you’d like to stay in touch, you can find ways on the contact page.

Here’s a list of people working primarily within the Alberta Fibreshed:

    Rosebud River Fibre Mill (yarn, spinning fibre, wool processing)
    Custom Woolen Mills (yarn, spinning fibre, wool processing, finished goods – some products are sourced from Canadian sources, and not just Alberta)
    Twisted Sisters Fibre Mill & Store (Specializing in Alpaca; yarn, spinning fibre, finished goods – some products are non-Alberta sources)
    Kalea The Luddite (yarn)
