Inspired by rugged rocky coastlines, Acadia is a rustic blend of fine Merino wool (providing warmth) and baby alpaca and silk noil (adding drape and lustre as well as an interesting knobbly texture). The heathered appearance of this DK weight yarn is achieved from a kettle dyeing process that creates the subtle duotones for which The Fibre Co. has become known.
Gently hand wash colors separately in cool water. We recommend alternating hanks as you work to give an overall blended appearance.
FREE Yarn Winding
Many of our yarns are sold in hanks rather than balls and need to be wound into a "cake" before using. If you'd like us to do this for you, please add the Ball Winding Service to your order of yarn! (Please note: wound yarn can not be returned.)
