Renewed Relationship...are you ready?
The Fibre Co has been a part of my yarn mix from the very beginning but somehow it's never been given the spotlight it deserves...THAT is about to change!!!! I've jumped on the Yarn of the Month wagon and it's just the beginning. So introducing both June's and July's yarns of the month...
What goes into making the perfect yarn for socks? Listen to The Fibre Co. founder Daphne, and in this first film short for our Yarn of the Month Amble, she describes the development process for creating this unique yarn, made especially to delight sock knitters.
I have just replenished our Amble colors so be sure to indulge...you'll be glad you did!
July's Yarn of the Month...Meadow
Our next Yarn of the Month is a truly rustic yarn with great fibre character. Being a lace weight yarn, it combines baby llama and fine Merino wool for softness, silk for its sheen and linen for the crisp hand and stitch definition - perfect for summery projects.
Meadow is a yarn full of possibility and subtlety. This 2-ply yarn is a heavy lace weight with incredible drape and sheen. Wonderful for wearing next to your skin in shawls, and lightweight, warm weather garments.
You will not believe how exceptionally soft it is and what remarkable stitch definition it has.
