This Kit Includes:
4 Hanks of Acadia (1 each in the following colorways: Summer Sweet, Yellow Birch, Blue Heron, Thunder Bay)
1 Drawstring Project Bag
1 Digital Copy of the In The Flow Pattern (check it out onRavelry here!)
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 luster 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.
