The Fibre Co Road to China Light
The Road to China blend was born from The Fibre Co’s days of owning a small mill back in Maine, USA. Years of fibre exploration at the carding machine hand blending raw fleeces led to the persuit if thr perfect yarn made from truly luxurious fibres. The resulting Road to China blend creates a knit fabric with a soft halo but enoughdefintion to xplore ubtle textures and shifting patterns. In keeping with the tone of gentle decadence that Road to China brings, we developed a colour palette that is inspired by nature’s jewels and dyed each hank to work in harmony with the raw fibres that go ino the blend. Combining the light fawn of the baby alpaca with the soft tones of camel and cashmere as well as the lustrous sheen of silk givesthe perfect base for subtle duotones that peek through out saturated colours. Road to China Light is the hank we reach for when we ant to create somethings truly special. The 50g hanks are the perfect treat for dreary afternoons away from the world for a few moments as we focus on our making.
