Introducing…..ACADIA!

We are absolutely delighted to announce a brand new yarn in the Fibre Company lineup, Acadia!

Named after the gorgeous Acadia National Park in Maine, Acadia is an absolutely beautiful, completely original and custom designed 2-ply blend of 60% merino, 20% baby alpaca + 20% silk, with a put up of 149 yards per 50 gram skein and a recommended gauge of 21-23 stitches to 4 inches. Like the well loved, Terra, the silk in Acadia has some slubbed silk noil, creating a subtle tweedy effect. In order to create an additional level of depth and tone, the baby alpaca we used is a dark brown, and then the heathered yarn (in fact, the blend created a grey tone) is overdyed in the duotones we are known for, creating a yarn with incredible softness and depth of color.

We hemmed and hawed quite a bit over the intial lineup, and are proud to present to you the thirteen introductory colors:

We see Acadia as both a beautiful accessory and sweater yarn and cannot wait for you to see and feel just how wonderful it is.¬†Acadia will be made “officially” available the first week of July, so look and ask for it in your favorite LYS!
