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

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.

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.

        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

                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.

                    I made a garter stitch triangle scarf with curled tassels. It was breathtakingly beautiful, knit up in this elegant and artsy yarn. I used blueberry and a purple (I don't have the name handy). Because of the wood background the purple appears much bluer than it actually is.
