From The Fibre Company
“Rustic Luxury”
Be they coastal, wooded or alpine, meadows are important ecosystems housing local fauna and serving as a fertile growing ground for flora of many varieties. Usually filled with grasses and other non-woody plants, the theme of lightness is everywhere in a meadow. What better name for a light lace weight yarn?

Our Meadow yarn feels like it waited for just the right moment to arrive. Early production of The Fibre Co. yarns relied heavily on our mini mill in Maine being optimised for DK or Worsted weight yarn. A lace weight yarn felt just a little out of reach as recalibrating the components of the mill for this delicate weight slowed production down too much for it to be more than a pipedream. However, with the growth of The Fibre Co. came strong working relationships with mills capable of helping us realise the perfect Summer lace weight, spun with our trademark blend of luxury fibres.

So Meadow was born and often calls to mind Daphne’s favourite quote: “Adventure is worthwhile- Aesop

Like all of The Fibre Co. family of yarns, Meadow tells the story of our development and commitment to waiting till just the right fibres and processing methods are available for us to realise our dreams. Meadow is the perfect combination of four luxurious fibres: merino, baby llama silk and linen, spun into a 2 ply yarn that’s slightly heavier than a typical lace weight yarn. This blend of fibres and structure makes for a versatile yarn that works well on a wide variety of needle sizes and a wide array of projects. Combining the crisp hand and stitch definition of linen with the sheen of silk is perfectly complimented by the softness of baby llama and merino. A yarn for fibre lovers who like a treat on the needles and for their handmades.
