Acadia, a tweedy two-ply yarn by the Fibre Company, is a beautiful yarn that is available in a rich palette with subtle color variation. The dk-weight yarn is 60 percent merino wool, 20 percent baby alpaca, and 20 percent silk. It knits up at 21-23 stitches to the inch on size 5-6 needles.

The shop has a display sample of Quaking Aspen (shown above), a two-color triangular shawl. The free pattern uses several rows of stripes to separate the garter stitch body from the lacy leaf edging.

The heathered colorways also make it perfect for casual, rustic knits. Because of the variation in color, we recommend alternating skeins when knitting larger projects.

The shop has several colors in stock — Amber (brown with flecks of pink), Asparagus (bright green), Bog (dark green), Driftwood (gray), Dusk (dark blue-gray), Granite (blue-gray), Lupine (purple), Maple (burgundy), and Strawberry (pink).

Acadia is put up in 50 gram hanks that measure 145 yards. Call for availability.
