Acadia and Savannah by The Fibre Co.

Acadia is an absolutely beautiful, completely original and custom designed 2-ply yarn with a rustic look and soft hand. A subtle tweed effect created by the silk noil is combined with a heathered base and then overdyed in the duotones The Fibre Co. are known for, creating incredible depth of color. We have chosen two free patterns that will show off these wonderful fibers while working on an original design. Stop by the Yarns By Design boutique to choose from our wonderful selection of colors.

Savannah is a beautiful and rustic spun 2-ply yarn with a crisp yet soft hand. The unique blend of fibers are spun and then kettle dyed, and the different way the fibers absorb the dye creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones. Additionally, Savannah is spun and dyed in the U.S.A., and we are proud to play a small role in supporting local textile mills here in Pennsylvania.

Ritalin Cowl by Shelley L Brander

Shelley designed this Ritalin Cowl because her mother insisted she was hyperactive. It’s perfect for ADD knitters. Just when you get tired of a stitch, or a color, wheeeee here comes a new one! Shelley also wanted to show off the amazing range of colors in Acadia from the Fiber Company.

Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn

A combination of two of Kate's favorite things. Traditionally-inspired shapes and techniques with a modern twist, and triangular neckwear with limitless styling possibilities, the leaf motifs in the body of Springtime Bandit evolve into lacy chevrons and the end result is a warm, soft accessory. Designed to show off the slubby texture and next-to-skin softness of this fiber, it’s the thing to reach for when the weather turns cool.
