New kits: Gideon shawl + worsted weight trios

Gideon by Melissa Schaschwary

A soothing triangle shawl, with minimal, yet effective texture which demonstrates that sometimes less is more. This beautiful shawl combines two of our favourite worsted weight yarns, Cashmerino Worsted and Merino Twist Worsted. Melissa Schaschwary combines the rustic Bruin and the gorgeous Ever Grey for her version of this stunning shawl.

I've put together several yarn kit combinations that I think capture the beauty of the original design, they can all be found right here in the shop.

 


 

worsted weight trios: 3 skeins, 3 ways

Our worsted weight trios are bundles of three skeins in three different colourways, perfect for a group of single skein accessories or colourwork combos. Trios are currently available in both our Cashmerino Worsted and Merino Twist Worsted bases. Each base has five different colour combinations up for grabs, including the mystery + sequoia + marshland combination that was used for three of our hats designs in the Sweet Fiber Accessories e-book.

CORMO

 We're excited to announce that a new, limited edition yarn will be available soon in our online shop! The exact day and time of the update has been sent out to those on our emailing list

CORMO is a warm, lofty fingering weight wool that is both bouncy and incredibly soft. Dyed in small batches, we have perfected several of our favourite Sweet Fiber colourways on this new base. This is a limited edition yarn that may or may not be offered again this year.

Pictured below is our almost-white grey "Winter." More CORMO colourways can be seen here

Our Cormo yarns are purchased from family-owned farms in the US and hand dyed here in our Canadian studio. 

Stitches West 2013: Recap

A big thank you is in order to all of the wonderful knitters who took the time to visit the Sweet Fiber booth this year at Stitches West. It was great meeting many of our customers in person, as well as meeting and chatting with many new ones throughout the weekend. Below you will find the list of yarns, samples and books we had at the show, along with links to their Ravelry pages. We may not have taken as many pictures as we would have liked (it was just too darn busy!) but we did manage to sneak in a couple before opening night.
