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.

      This was the perfect yarn for the church mouse easy fold poncho. It drapes beautifully, is lightweight, and warm, and is a great travel item. I have worn my poncho in Paris, Batcelona and London.

          I couldn't resist this yarn when I saw it on the site, and I'm glad I didn't. It has a wonderful slubby texture due to the silk and the colors are just beautiful. I bought SummerSweet and Blue Birch. The SummerSweet will be wonderful for spring. I just finished crocheting a cardigan with it and worked up awesome. I'm holding on to the Blue Birch for something special. Peoplehave complained about the dye lots. I had mixed dye lots and I noticed no difference whatsoever in the colors. I will purchase more of this wonderful yarn once WEBS reorders more colors.

            I've made 7 of the Acadia cowl/ gaiter .. which can also be used as an ear warmer. I love this yarn and would like to have a sweater of it. The stitches show very well plus it feels so yummy against the skin without being fuzzy.

              Acadia has really beautiful color and texture. My skin is quite sensitive, but I can wear the mitts that I made right next to the skin and they feel nice and soft. The yarn has a nice elasticity. Only good things to say! I'll use it again.

                  I love this yarn. I'm using it for a sweater - nice soft hand, great drape when knitted. Some hard debris in the twist, but easily picked out.

                  Not sure I would buy this again. The black color bleeds.

                      Nice definition for fair isle but it bleeds. I found it costly for a small project.

                          I made the Acadia loop cowl with one skein. Very soft again the skin and maintains good stitch definition. I want to make something else just to use the yarn again.
