Inspired by rugged rocky coastlines, Acadia is a rustic blend of fine Merino wool (providing warmth) and baby alpaca and silk noil (adding drape and lustre as well as an interesting knobbly texture). The heathered appearance of this DK weight yarn is achieved from a kettle dyeing process that creates the subtle duotones for which The Fibre Co. has become known.

    I love the feel of the sweater but find that it pills quite a bit..

      Hi Lou,

      We’re so happy you love the feel of Acadia. It is truly a favourite of many knitters.

      Regarding the issue of pilling, our experience shows that finer fibres spun in a loose twist, especially those with silk noil and merino in the blend, will generally pill. We usually see the pilling occurring mostly in garments worn on the body where abrasion is more likely as opposed to head and neckwear. The pilling should definitely level off after a few defuzzing treatments.

      We suggest using a tool like the Gleener Fuzz Remover or the Lilly Brush. We also recommend a full soak during blocking as it can help the fibres settle into their knitted structure with fewer ends sticking out.

      For more information and ideas about how to view and treat pilling, some of the best in our industry have written about this topic. We think the following articles are very useful:

    This is unquestionably my favourite yarn. It’s unbelievably sumptuous to look at and to wear, and a pleasure to work with. I had barely finished a cardigan in Royal Tern that I had to start another in the new shade, Sugar Maple; the silk noil does magic to the hues, they positively glow when touched by light.

    I used this to make a poncho (which sadly was misplaced) and I loved knitting with it. The yarn draped so, so nicely. I plan to make the same poncho again with Acadia.

    This is quite possibly my very favorite yarn ever! It is the epitome of luxuryโ€ฆso soft yet with texture, such a lovely drape yet not droopy, and the colorsโ€ฆwell, just amazing! I bought 4 colors (Jack Pine, Butterfly Bush, Blue Heron, and Yellow Birch) and made a cowl. So beautiful!
