    About

    Brigadoon Fiber Farm - the best of New Brunswick Alpaca and one of a kind Handwovens.

    Growing and creating home comforts from fibre is a centuries old craft. Providing warmth and comfort to people around the world and our own hearth. Brigadoon Fiber Farm follows in those footsteps, creating unique yarns and handwovens using the same techniques and many tools used historically. All processing is done completely within the maritimes either on farm in our studio or a small mill used for our yarn.

    All items are handwoven in studio on one of 5 wooden looms dating from 1840 through to 1989. I love heritage weaving designs and bring this antiqued feeling of hearth and home to everything we do.

    Choosing to create high quality wool and alpaca yarns comes with the challenge of re-educating an audience who expects 'wool' yarn from a craft store. Creating and purchasing fine yarns ensures small farm preservation. With the industrial revolution, yarns are produced in large factories with corrosive chemicals. They favor white yarns to later dye. This ensured that herdsmen tend to keep white sheep. Those beautiful breeds with colored fleeces are being bred out of existence to suit this expanding market.

    The alpaca fiber is grown on our farm, right outside our door. In mid spring we shear our animals, then skirted to remove all portions that are unsuitable for spinning. It's then sent to our local mill for yarn or roving, or kept in house for dying and hand spinning.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or would like something only you would think of!

    Returns and exchanges
    All returns must be made within 5 days of your receiving the item. Please remember that you are purchasing hand spun wool. There will be vegetation and each is unique. We do our best to give accurate measurements, weights and all information possible. If you've purchased the material and found that it's not to your liking we're very sorry you'd like to return it. The item may be returned and a refund will be made, minus original shipping charges and $5.00 restocking fee.

    The item must remain in it's original wrapper, remain in skein form and not have been used in any way. (not frogged and re-wrapped). If the item is returned and smells of smoke, has been used, is stained or dirty we are unable to offer a refund at all.

    Any return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer making the return.

    We are also unable to take leftover yarn. If you have 200yds or only used a small portion from a skein there are lots of things you can do with this! you just can't return it :)
    Payment
    Payment can be made through Paypal, etsy gifts cards or direct checkout and must be paid immediately.

    If visiting us at a local craft fair, we accept cash and most major credit cards
    Shipping
    If you live locally, belong to a craft group and would like to pick up your items we would be happy to oblige! Please enter code OTTAWAVALLEY4PU when checking out and let us know when you'll be by.

    All pre-made yarns will be shipped in 1-3 days after payment has been completed. All shippments will be made with Canada Post through Paypal and can take 1 week (within Canada) and up to 2 weeks for everywhere else.

    For all shippments leaving north America, the shipping prices are generalized quotes. I will check shipping prices and contact the seller prior to shipping. All additional shipping costs will be the sellers responsibility. If the charges are too high, a full refund of the shipping amount will be made.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    If purchasing bulk orders of 3 skeins or more, we can offer bulk discounts of %5. Please include coupon code 'BULKINGUP3'

    Larger projects do require more yarn and we understand that this can be costly. If you require a certain yardage over 300yds we can offer you a discount. This cannot be applied to pre-made yarns listed. We have a variety of fibers, colors and patterns that you may choose from. The first 150yds range from $25-40.00 depending on the fiber and pattern with each consecutive yard $0.10-0.20. As this is done on the bobbin we will spin as close to your required yardage as possible. This yardage may go over and all additional yardage will be included in the final price. Please send us a message here on etsy or at brigadoonfarm [!at] outlook.com for more information!

    If you've stashed away your own fiber and would like it spun, we can do this as well! Dog fur, sheeps fiber, llama, alpaca - whatever! We can also blend colors or fibers or dye them $3/skien. This is a flat rate of 25.00 for the initial $150yds. Each additional yard is $0.07. We would be happy to spin the entirety of the fiber or to a specific yardage. We do require that these fibers be clean (in the very least skirted) prior to them coming to us. If you're unsure how to wash and process fibers, we'd be happy to do this for you. A processing fee will be added to your order per lb of fiber. $15 for cleaning and carding, or $10 for carding.

    All custom made yardage will be spun over never under the required amount - we know what it's like to run out at the last row!!

    HOW WE'RE CRUELTY FREE:

    Most importantly, my yarns are cruelty free. We raise our own flock of sheep and Alpaca right here on our farm. I know each's personality and have a bond with them all. They are more than livestock! My boys love tending to our flock and spending time in the paddock is quite therapeutic. Shearing is done every year to prevent skin problems that can be caused by long matted fur.
    As the animals know us from our many daily visits to the pasture, they are not stressed at shearing or check up time. If you're ever in our area, visit our farm gate shop for yourself and see our beautiful herd.
