The Fibre Company 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

      Comments about Fibre Company Acadia:

      I knitted a highly textured sweater with traveling twisted celtic pattern for my Granddaughter. The yarn worked perfectly for it. My Granddaughter loved the way the silk picked up the dyes and the feel. It looked as if she should be wearing it to Ireland or Scotland.

      I also knitted the cowl using the pattern that is recommended for Acacia and it turned out very well -- love the feel of the blend.

        I'm knitting a draped front sweater, this yarn is great. It's texture hides any imperfect stitches!

            I love Acadia--its very soft with a great texture and a perfect weight. I made a bunch of hats and shawls from this yarn and loved it so much I am now making a sweater for myself. It has great stitch definition while still maintaining a subtle slubby texture. I just keep buying this yarn!

              Comments about Fibre Company Acadia:

              I used Acadia for the Mountain Nettle Shawl from Knitscene Accessories 2012. (It was the recommended yarn.) Perfect for this simple shawl, the yarn was incredibly soft and easy to knit. Its loose ply may be an issue for sweaters or items that get heavier use, but I'd definitely use it again for cowls, scarves, hats or other simple shawls that call for a more rustic look.

                I love this yarn! I found it in Maine last summer and made a couple of hats; and now i am knitting a sweater from the latest Knit Wear. I like that it is a solid color but the different fibers take the dye differently, so it has muted variations, and it is slubby. It is very soft and can work for all seasons. I search for patterns for this yarn and will certainly use it again.
