Merlene’s Fine Fibres Studio. 84 Queen St, Barraba.
Our friend Rhonda Ellem in Armidale had recently visited Merlene’s studio and recommended that we do the same. Merlene, who has been spinning and dyeing, knitting and weaving for over 30 years, is passionate about her craft. The day of our visit, she was busy teaching one of her students how to spin.
Merlene accurately describes her shop as a “treasure trove of handspun yarns, jumpers, hats, rugs and shawls…featuring local and exotic fibres, Barraba’s very own wool, alpaca, cashmere, mohair and llama…hand dyed in vibrant colours from local forest plants and natural dyes.” for further information about opening times, please phone Merlene on 0267821838
