We have added linen to soft alpaca and strong Highland wool for our &Make DK yarn and it really adds a crispness to the stitch definition, making it a perfect yarn for textured stitch patterns—popping purls, crisp crochet, sharp stitches in every craft—this is a versatile 2 ply yarn great for sweaters, accessories.
Yarn for stitchers at every stage of their crafting journey, made from 100% natural, sustainable fibres from renewable sources. &Make has a stunning full palette of cheerful brights and nuanced shades created by overdyeing a range of naturally light and dark coloured fibres.
With a choice of weights, you will find the perfect yarn for your crafting dreams: be it the plump, round stitches of our Super Bulky single-ply yarn which works up with satisfying speed, or our 2-ply Aran made with a blend of soft alpaca and strong Highland wool which loves colourwork, or our 2-ply DK, with fantastically crisp stitch definition for those beautiful textured stitch patterns, these yarns are designed to bring joy to every stitch of your sweater, accessory or homeware project.
Our first set of yarns for the &Make range each include Fairtrade hard-wearing Peruvian Highland wool in the blend. This wool was recommended by our partner mill in Peru with whom we have worked for nearly 20 years. We are proud to support the work of the fair trade suppliers of this wool and to include the Peru Fair Trade logo on our &Make labels.
“The &Make brand from The Fibre Co. includes this lovely DK-weight, which is spun in Peru using a blend of Highland wool, alpaca and linen. It’s a joy to knit with, giving a nicely draping fabric with a beautiful handle and crisply defined stitches. The palette offers modern brights and classic neutrals” – The Knitter, Issue 190
