More Fibre Company Samples

The Fibre Company has sent us another Trunk Show to share with you.  This collection features designs by the Kelbourne Woolens design team of Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley.  All 20 patterns from the pages of Vintage Modern Knits arrived last week, and we are featuring our favorites that have been knit up in some of the beautiful Fibre Company yarns we have in stock.

Our newest favorite, Canopy Worsted is a delicious blend of 50% Alpaca, 30% Merino, and 20% Bamboo.  The bamboo provides a wonderful sheen to the yarn that gathers light and makes stitches look their best.  Among the collection, the Bramble Beret and the Telemark Leg Warmers are created with this beautiful yarn.

Road to China Light is a sport weight blend of 65% Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Camel, and 10% Cashmere. This yarn is a perennial favorite among our customers who delight at the soft richness of this fiber blend.  It is a perfect luxurious choice for winter accessories that are as soft as they are beautiful.  Our favorite sample in the collection knit up with Road to China Light would have to be the Margarethe Lace Shawl.

Last but not least is Terra, featured in the Brigid Jacket.  This single ply slubby yarn is a beautiful rustic blend of 40% Merino, 40% Alpaca, and 20% Silk.  It is a beautiful choice for the cabled cardigan and has been a popular pattern on Ravelry.

These samples will need to head on their way by the middle of the month, so we hope that you can stop  by before then to take a look at them and try them on.
