It is that time of year again – the introduction of a beautiful new yarn to the Fibre Company lineup! This year, we’re happy to announce the release of Tundra, a gorgeous, lofty, 2-ply bulky in a blend of 60% baby alpaca, 30% merino + 10% silk. Named after the beautiful arctic wilderness, Tundra comes in hefty 100 gram / 120 yard skeins and the color names reflect the wintery landscape. Designed to be knit at 12-14 sts to 4″ on size US 10-11 needles, Tundra is perfect for quick knit accessories and warm, luxurious garments.
To start the line off, we’re introducing 12 beautiful colors, many of them variations on familiar classics in the Fibre Company palette.
In conjunction with the release of the yarns, we’re also releasing a new pattern, the Arctic Circle Cowl. Designed using two skeins of glacier by Antonia Shankland, the cowl features a simple-yet-interesting slipped stitch pattern and lovely garter stitch edges for balance.
The Cowl is part of a larger collection we photographed about three weeks ago, to be released over the coming months. Look forward to a wide selection of garments and accessories featuring the lineup of Fibre Company yarns, as well as a mini-collection of accessories in Tundra.
