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

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.

    Comments about Fibre Company Acadia:

    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.
