We are very excited to announce that our first wholesale patterns, a collection of six individual hat patterns, are available now!  It took a little bit longer than we originally intended to get them ready for production, but we really wanted to make sure they were as perfect as they could possibly be.

The patterns will eventually be available in two formats, as hard copies from your local Fibre Company stockist available this week as well as in digital format, to come at a later date.

For the hard copy patterns, we searched far and wide to find a printer able to produce them in large quantities while still doing as much as possible to reduce their carbon footprint.  Enter Print Net Inc, a company based in Pittsburgh, PA.

We were able to work closely with the company to get the patterns printed exactly to our specifications.  All of the patterns are printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper with non-toxic low-impact vegetable-based inks.  We also were able to get 100% recycled biodegradable (cool, right?) plastic sheets to put the patterns in.

Another great aspect of the pattern collection is the 3-ring binders available for purchase to store the patterns.  Again, with Print Net Inc, we designed a pattern binder that is 100% recycled and printed with the same vegetable inks.  A screen printed image on the spine makes them easy to spot in the store!

As time goes by, we will be adding *Pattern Stockist* under the shops listed on on our stockist page that carry the Fibre Company yarns and patterns so you can easily find a LYS near you.  In the meantime, if you are interested in finding out where you can purchase the patterns, email us at info {at} kelbournewoolens {dot} com and we'd be happy to help you out! And, if your LYS does not yet carry the line of patterns (or yarns, for that matter!) tell them you want our products!

We hope you love this new aspect of Kelbourne Woolens + The Fibre Company!
