Yarn Highlight: The Fibre Company!

This just in: The Fibre Company! This yarn brand makes the most geogeous and wonderfully luxuriously soft yarns you can imagine, in lots of beautiful colors! We have Canopy Fingering Weight, Road to China Light, and Terra!

Canopy Fingering is a lovely blend of Baby Alpaca, Merino Wool, and Bamboo. I think it would be great for some heirloom baby garments, or a big lacy shawl!

Road to China Light is a DK weight yarn made of Baby Alpaca, Cashmere, Camel, and Silk. It's unbelievably soft, I wish I could make a giant blanket out of it and hibernate all winter!

Terra is a worsted weight blend of Baby Alpaca, Wool, and Silk, and just like the other two yarns, it is so soft! It's a single ply yarn that looks a little more rustic, but it certainly doesn't feel rustic!

In addition to these beautiful yarns, Fibre Company has a number of great free patterns, which are available here at the shop! You could make an adorable baby sweater with Canopy Fingering, like Lucille or the Fiddlehead Pullover! You could knit a luxurious cowl, like the Alice Cowl, out of Road To China Light, and Terra would knit up nice and warm into The Hiker's Waistcoat, or a cute pair of Lychee Mittens!
