New colors in Acadia.

The Fibre Company’s gorgeous Acadia has become quite popular at the shop. After a month and a half of life here, the Acadia basket was missing two colors, and looking quite sad indeed. When Anne and I reordered those colors, and others we were low on, we figured, why not get a few new colors, as well?


This dk weight blend of merino wool, alpaca, and silk is tweedy-looking and soft to the touch, perfect for scarves, shawls, hats, mitts, and other accessories. I’ve been daydreaming about making a sweater in Acadia–that would be a treat.


Come by the shop to see the new Acadia palette!

    Hey y’all,
    I’m in N.M. knitting my way through six balls of Acadia Blueberry, dyelot 056. I’m getting worried I might need two extra balls. Can you set aside two more, if you have them? I’ll be home after the 14th. The yarn is FANTASTIC to work with–light springy soft and wonderfully irregular.
    Thanks and cheers,

    • Katherine,

      We just got two more bags of Acadia in Blueberry and they just happen to be in your same dyelot, 56! I’ll set two aside for you to pick up next time you’re in the shop. Enjoy your time in NM!
