The Road to China Light

16,50

The Road to China blend was born from the days the Fibre Co owning a small mill back in Maine in the early days of The Fibre Co. Years of fibre exploration at the carding machine hand blending raw fleeces led to the pursuit of the perfect yarn made from truly luxurious fibres. The resulting Road to China blend creates a knit fabric with a soft halo but enough definition to explore subtle textures and shifting patterns. In keeping with the tone of gentle decadence that Road to China brings, they developed a colour palette that is inspired by nature’s jewels and dyed each hank to work in harmony with the raw fibres that go into the blend. Combining the light fawn of the baby alpaca with the soft tones of camel and cashmere as well as the lustrous sheen of silk gives the perfect base for subtle duotones that peek through our saturated colours. Road to China Light is the hank that Daphine reachs for when she wants to create something truly special. The 50g hanks are the perfect treat for dreary afternoons hidden away from the world for a few moments as the focus on the making.

Care: Gently hand wash colours separately in cool water. We recommend alternating skeins as you work to give an overall blended appearance.

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

passion for the unusual in
beauty and texture with subtle
variances. As nature intended
