The Fibre Co. Acadia

Fibre Company Acadia is an absolutely stunning blend of merino, baby alpaca, and silk. It has a slight tweedy appearance because the silk takes the dye just a bit differently. This DK weight yarn would work up into gorgeous garments and incredible accessories. Try combining the wonderful colors too! Made in Peru

I used this yarn in blueberry, and sea lavender to make a shawl for a friend. It was lovely to work with. The end product was soft and cozy with a nice drape. I loved it so much, I'm going to make one for myself in mussel and sea lavender.

Gorgeous yarn but watch the dye lots!

I absolutely love this yarn. HOWEVER, even though all my skeins were of the same dye lot, there is a significantly darker area on my sweater. Quite noticeable. I'm disappointed about that.

I'm knitting the Beech Hill ruana. Can tell it will be a lovely light piece to wear in spring or fall. Not sure how this yarn will wash - it will need to be handled gently. Do love the soft colors and eccentric texture.

    Comments about Fibre Company Acadia:

    This yarn is incredibly soft without being floppy. It has a nice bounce and a lovely look. Frogs well too!

    Warm enough for a winter accessory but probably could be used in a an openwork pattern for a transitional one.

    I knit the Acadia Cowl with it and ended up adding 100% more length because I didn't want to stop knitting with it.

            Love this yarn knits up beautifully, I first saw this yarn at a knitting group knitted in to a hat. The yarn has nice stretch and recovery, very soft that's why I choose it for my sweater. I'm rather new to knitting but I will definitely purchase again. After ordering my yarn arrived within a few days

                  Beautiful Yarn. I knit up two matching sweaters and the yarn knit up great. Seems to be a durable yarn with a very soft touch.

                    I absolutely love this yarn and I know that I will use it again and again. I knit a shawl in Summersweet. It has a subtle variegation in the colors. This yarn is so soft and easy to work with. Just elegant.
