The Yarn

Made with love, in Peru

A warm and lofty blend of baby alpaca, Merino wool and silk

Blending fine Merino wool, baby alpaca and silk for a plump yarn with lots of loft that creates a relatively lightweight fabric but with all the enveloping warmth you would expect from such an ample yarn.

The Origin
why we chose Tundra

A bulky Yarn with a pleasing appearance

A bulky Yarn with a pleasing appearance

In many ways, the beginning of Tundra is the beginning of The Fibre Co. itself.

The Beginning

When founder Daphne had an idea for a bulky yarn made of all the most beautiful fibres back in the early days of The Fibre Co., she sat down in front of the carding machine and began mixing beautiful fibres together in a playful experiment.

The Mill

With the local beach 'Pemaquid' as inspiration, a luxurious thicker yarn was created, and this time the mix included mulberry silk in addition to the finest Merino and a substantial portion of baby alpaca, to create a sumptuous yarn.

The Palette

The palette of Tundra is the result of this rich blend of fibres. Several of the shades are hand-dyed, and the addition of silk to the Merino and baby alpaca means that the dye is absorbed by each fibre in a slightly different way and complex shades can be coaxed out of the process.

Stockist Testimonials

A stockist story from Knitting Off Broadway

"Tundra is one of our favorite go-to winter yarns!"

We received a lovely review of Tundra from Knitting Off Broadway and just a few examples of which patterns their customers LOVE to knit up in our Tundra yarn!

“The blend of fibres are so soft customers can’t resist.  The hand dyed nature knits up beautifully, and since most projects are just one or two skeins, you don’t need to blend yarns!
 
The ‘Quick Bulky Cowl‘ is still popular!  It is an engaging knit with lots of texture and everyone loves an excuse to use buttons. The ‘Bauble Cowl‘ is another really fun simple knit.
 
However, the ‘Falling Snow Stockings‘ are such a shop favorite. Many customers learned to knit Fair Isle using Tundra!”
 
 

A stockist story from Spun

"I'm a sucker for color, and when my eyes landed on Arranmore Light, I couldn't turn away!"

Spun staff member Kate just finished knitting her Mariechen (designed by Isabell Kraemer) out of Arranmore Light. After an initial color quandary, she thoroughly enjoyed the project: 

“My difficulty was picking which color to use: The subtle flecks in Riveresque that create a light blue with depth? The rich saturation in Meera that made me want to dive in? Finally I settled on the vivid melange of orange and pink that Orla provided, and the color kept me happy the whole time I was knitting my cardigan.”
 
And Spun’s Amanda just launched into her Cadadh (designed by Kate Davies), opting for the beautiful neutral Tallach so that her piece would have broad appeal:
 
“I am loving it! Arranmore Light is the perfect balance of rustic and luxury.”
 
“I love that the cashmere and silk add a softness to the yarn without distracting from the wooly core. It’s sturdy without being stiff, and it’s gentle on my hands, thanks to the stretch in the wool. I look forward to wrapping myself in this cozy shawl on a chilly day.”
