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!

Sunlit Shawl Kits Are Here!

I’m happy to announce that one of our most requested kits is now available for pre-order in the Sweet Fiber online shop! For this round of Sunlit Shawl kits, I have hand picked 27 colourways that look absolutely amazing on Avery Sport and Silk Cashmere Lace!

Sunlit Shawl is a light, airy shawl inspired by the sun and the way its beams navigate through and around the natural world. Semi circle in shape, Sunlit Shawl uses two silk blend yarns of the same colourway and different weights to create a stunning burnout effect. The shawl starts at the top center and works out to the main body and striping, finishing with a picot bind off. There is enough yarn included in the kit to increase the size of your shawl, should you wish to do so.

This yarn kit includes:

2 skeins of Avery Sport (50% Merino, 50% Silk - 329m/360y per 95g skein) 
1 skein of Silk Cashmere Lace (55% Silk, 45% Cashmere - 366m/400y per 50g skein)

The Sunlit Shawl pattern must be purchased separately and can be found here.

studio update: Cashmerino 20 Pre-Order & Stitch Markers!

 

It's been a rather slow start to 2015 here at the new Sweet Fiber Studio. However, I am happy to announce that things are becoming more functional and efficient with each passing day as I find new systems and set ups that work in our new space. There are still a few boxes left to unpack in between test dyes and reshuffling, but it's exciting to feel like I am finally getting somewhere with all of this. It has been surprisingly challenging to move from a small but familiar and efficiently set up space to a much larger one with nothing in it. The potential this new space holds for growth and productivity has definitely kept me focused through all of the craziness that comes with moving your home and your work at the same time. While I work out the kinks, I've been putting together an exciting line-up of new kits, pre-order and clubs for the coming months. But more on that later!

The online shop has officially re-opened today with stitch markers and a Cashmerino 20 pre-order. I've had a lot of requests for the neon jelly stitch markers I sell at shows and am excited to announce they are now available online! Each rubber ring is smooth and flexible, making it easy to slip along with your knitting. In addition, I've set up the first pre-order of the year. Cashmerino 20 is a super soft merino (70%), cashmere (20%), nylon (10%) blend and is perfect for socks, shawls, lightweight tops and anything else you'd like to wrap yourself in. It's available for pre-order in all of our 45+ colourways (while quantities last). Pre-orders will ship in approximately 4 weeks from the date of order.
