About Us

ACME Fibres is a Canadian online-only retailer based in Fort Erie, Ontario.

Our aim is to provide the best yarns, fibres, dyes and tools available – focusing, whenever we can, on products with a Canadian flavour. We are always actively seeking out Canadian makers and suppliers.

We prefer to carry the sorts of things that your local yarn shop would find uneconomical to keep in stock – undyed yarns, dyes in larger package sizes, or uncommon knitting needle sizes. We choose not to deal much in commercial yarns because your local yarn shop does it better; please support them by shopping locally whenever you can.

We are here to serve folks who live in rural areas and the Far North, where local yarn shops are far away or don’t exist. We’re also here to supply artists and DIYers who just want to do their own thing.

We believe in the smallest of small yarn-dyeing businesses: the kitchen-table entrepreneurs who are just starting out, and chasing their dreams on a shoestring budget. We can provide the materials for the first steps you take, and support you until you’ve gotten big enough that you don’t need us anymore… and then we’ll take joy in your growth and success, and cheer you on. We believe in the power of small businesses to change lives.

We hope you find what you’re looking for here; if we don’t carry something you need, please feel free to ask.
