The Fibre Company Acadia

Acadia is a rustic blend of silk noil, baby alpaca and fine merino wool and is one of the most versatile yarns in The Fibre Co. collection. Ideal for creating a handmade wardrobe that can be worn almost all year round, Acadia comes in a range of colours that sit well together to offer makers ample choice for projects. Warm browns and cool neutrals sit beside rich reds and greens, in a way that evokes memories of The Fibre Co.’s birthplace, the US state of Maine and the great park of the same name. Most of the shades in Acadia have a heathered appearance created from layers of beautiful raw fibres of natural brown baby alpaca, ecru merino tops and silk noil, which is then kettle dyed creating subtle duotones that are the hallmark of The Fibre Co. Acadia is the perfect option for the year-round knitter. Shades such as Egret, Sand and Mountain Ash use other natural shades of alpaca including white, light fawn and grey. Yarn weight: DK Hank weight: 50g Fibre: 60% Merino wool, 20% baby alpaca, 20% silk Length: 133m / 145yds per 50g hank Tension / Gauge: 21–23 sts per 10 cm / 4 in Needle size: 3.75–4 mm / 5–6 US Care: Gently hand wash colours separately in cool water. We recommend alternating hanks as you work to give an overall blended appearance.
