Cashmere DK + Amber Ale by Thea Colman

Cashmere DK Pre-Orders Are Here!

A couple times a year I open up pre-orders for the highly coveted Sweet Fiber Cashmere DK. Made with 100% cashmere this yarn is the definition of hand dyed luxury. Perfect for cowls, mitts, hats, scarves, and pretty much anything else you'd like to wrap yourself in!  This yarn is a pre-order and will ship during the week listed.

Amber Ale by Thea Colman - New Yarn Kits!

Thea Colman of BabyCocktails has designed a beautiful scarf just in time for Fall! Her latest design, Amber Ale, uses 4 skeins of Cashmere DK in Spiced Pumpkin. The distinct geometric lines in this pattern give some texture to the lace and makes following the motif easier than you’d think. Simple ribs edge the main panel and play off the tips of the final diamond shapes. It’s big and wide, but not so big that it can’t be tucked into a coat or worn with a blazer as an indoor accessory, and it drapes and falls perfectly around your shoulders.

Want a chance it see it in person? We'll have it on display at our Knit City booth this October!

Special Edition Colourway: Knit Night!

Knit Night is a new special edition colourway where each skein is 100% unique. The inspiration for this colourway comes from all of the wonderful colours present at my local knit nights, and knit nights around the world. The same dye colours and techniques are used, but each skein varies due to the "magic" that happens in the dye pots. If you'd like one with more green, pink, or another colour, please leave a note in the comment box and we will do our best to pick out your skein(s) accordingly! 

A limited number of Knit Night skeins are currently available for pre-order in our online shop. Our special edition colourways tend to go pretty quickly so be sure to grab yours before they're gone!

Indigo Dreams Now Available for Pre-Order!

Indigo Dreams is now available for pre-order! The second club colourway is inspired by my love of all things indigo. While attending university I experimented with traditional shibori dyeing techniques and indigo vat dyeing. This linen quilt was one of my favourite projects and has directly influenced this new colourway! (Side note: there's no need to worry about colour transfer or bleeding, as I did not use actual indigo in the creation of this colourway.)

There has been a lot of interest in this year's club colourways and I'm so grateful for all of the positive feedback. While I understand everyone is excited to get their hands on the new colourways, it is important to me that those who signed up for the club are given the proper exclusivity period that comes with the sock club. A new sock club colourway release will be announced in the coming months!

Wildflowers Now Available for Pre-order!

I am very excited to announce that pre-orders for the new Wildflowers colourway are now open! Wildflowers is inspired by my memories of picking flowers as a child in the spring and summer months here in British Columbia. Their beauty has blended together in my memory to create a very warm and vivid medley of dancing colour. This colourway has turned out exactly how I had first envisioned it and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I hope you love it too!

I can confirm that Indigo Dreams is the next club colourway that will be released for pre-order, but it's still a ways down the line.

Cashmerino Worsted Is Back!

 

Cashmerino Worsted Is Back!

After a lengthy hiatus our Cashmerino Worsted base is now back in stock and available for pre-order in the Sweet Fiber online shop! This is one of our most loved, most requested base yarns of all time and is also one of the hardest for me to get. Quantities are limited and I suspect it won’t be around for very long. Now’s the perfect time to stock up and get started on your Fall knits!

Many of my cool weather accessories have been designed using this gorgeous yarn!
