From The Fibre Co.
“Natural Inspiration’/ Of the Earth”
The founding yarn of The Fibre Co.’s luxury blends, Terra is the original skein that all other yarn lines grew from. Created by blending alpaca, merino and silk noil, Terra is an impossibly soft aran weight yarn that is perfect for nestling against the skin. The subtle duotone shades that kettle dyeing creates works in harmony with the soft single ply to showcase the interplay of fibres and colour of this carefully crafted yarn.

Terra draws together all of our greatest loves: colours inspired by nature’s palette and fibres selected for their natural beauty. Terra’s creation originated from Daphne’s early work, hand blending at her mill in Maine. In pursuit of the softest and most luxurious feeling yarn, Daphne explored the way in which dye reacted to the different natural colours of alpaca. These early experiments in hand blending and dye work have informed our process at The Fibre Co. ever since.

The Fibre Co’s yarn production has since moved on from our mill so that we can deliver our much loved products on a larger scale for knitters and makers. Terra, with its unique twists and textures is a yarn that grounds us in those early learning experiences and we always return there when developing new yarn ranges. The subtle differences in raw fibres inform every step of our process from colour development to the way our yarn is spun.

Terra is a yarn that begs to be next to the skin and draped around the body for comfort. Shawls, cowls and scarves offer a deliciously soft comfort against colder weather. Garments worked up in Terra are to be sunk into after weeks of pleasure on the needles. This original luxury blend with a rustic look and beautiful handle is perfect for timeless, heirloom pieces for you and your loved ones to enjoy.
