The Fibre Co ACADIA

Inspired by rugged rocky coastlines, Acadia is a rustic blend of fine Merino wool (providing warmth) and baby alpaca and silk noil (adding drape and lustre as well as an interesting knobbly texture). The heathered appearance of this DK weight yarn is achieved from a kettle dyeing process that creates the subtle duotones for which The Fibre Co. has become known.

Your Acadia Side by Side Sweater will be ideal for your Spring Wardrobe

West Yorkshire Spinners DK

The beautiful shades depict the depth and captivating colours of the countryside that surround us here in the heart of Yorkshire.From the luscious green rolling hills of the Pennine Way to the rugged, brooding beautyof the natural limestone rocks at Malham Cove, the essence of Yorkshire is spun into every ball. This yarn really is one of the finest in Britain – wool at its purest and a superb example of the incredible quality of British fleece…

The Fibre Co Arranmore Light

Inspired by the breath-taking scenery of Ireland, Arranmore Light yarn is spun in a mill that traces its roots to the homespun tweed industry of 19th century County Donegal. This DK-weight yarn blends cashmere and silk with fine Merino wool to create an authentic tweed yarn in a colour palette reminiscent of the wild Irish coastlands for makers who appreciate the best of luxury and tradition.

Malabrigo Arroyo DK

The Malabrigo Arroyo is the perfect choice for the Side by Side if you’re looking to add some colour to your wardrobe. A soft and sturdy plied sport-weight, Arroyo has quickly become a favourite among knitters! It’s perfect for those everyday lightweight (but warm) garments, and the superwash wool means it’s easy to take care of.

The Fibre Co Cirro

The Fibre Co.’s first brushed yarn is made in a mill in Southern Peru, home of the alpaca. Cirro is a sport weight yarn combining long lustrous Suri alpaca with Merino wool, and then wrapping this fluffy fibre around an organic cotton thread to make a light and airy yarn perfectly balanced for body and drape. Cirro creates a delightfully soft haloed fabric that is light as a feather and easily worn next to the skin

Cashmere at its finest.
