The Fibre Co Acadia

Acadia is a rustic blend of silk noil, baby alpaca and fine merino wool and is one of the most versatile yarns in The Fibre Co. collection. Ideal for creating a handmade wardrobe that can be worn almost all year round, Acadia comes in a range of colours that sit well together to offer makers ample choice for projects. Warm browns and cool neutrals sit beside rich reds and greens, in a way that evokes memories of The Fibre Co.’s birthplace, the US state of Maine and the great park of the same name. Most of the shades in Acadia have a heathered appearance created from layers of beautiful raw fibres of natural brown baby alpaca, ecru merino tops and silk noil, which is then kettle dyed creating subtle duotones that are the hallmark of The Fibre Co. Acadia is the perfect option for the year-round knitter. Shades such as Egret, Sand and Mountain Ash use other natural shades of alpaca including white, light fawn and grey.

Daphine is the granddaughter of Greek immigrants who left their beautiful homeland to seek fortune in the textile mills of New England at the turn of the last century. Her father continued in these footsteps and became a textile engineer. She picked up the torch in 2003 when She bought a small mill and began making the type of yarns that she dreamt of but couldn’t find on the retail shelves.

Daphine experimented with various blends of all natural fibres electing to use only the finest and softest, while applying some unusual combinations of colours to achieve a truly unique array of artisan quality yarns.

This was how her business plan began when she started the company back in 2003:

“Fibre expressed as art
Crafted with heartfelt
passion for the unusual in
beauty and texture with subtle
variances. As nature intended
These are the characteristics that
make up our unique artisan
yarns, ready to receive your
