As the fall progresses, the plans from our visit to the TNNA conference in June are falling into place! We kicked off September with the release of the Fibre Company's new yarn Lore, and now you we're ending the month with the introduction of Blue Sky Fibers to our collection of yarns!
Creating consciously crafted fibers and patterns is Blue Sky Fibers' passion. Ever since they first started with a small herd of alpacas in our backyard, Blue Sky Fibers have been committed to making yarn in the best way possible to show off its natural beauty. It all winds back to the yarn, ensuring that every precious, handmade hank is lovingly filled with endless inspiration.
Blue Sky Fibers started as a pet project, of sorts. Shortly after graduating college, owner/founder Linda Niemeyer's curious preoccupation with Alpacas led to her buying one. Soon Linda found herself with a lot of yarn on hand. She took it to a nearby yarn store, which was willing to buy and sell it. And the rest, is history. Today Blue Sky Fibers is known worldwide for its consciously crafted collection of high-quality natural fibers and patterns. One can only imagine how things might have turned out differently had Linda been obsessed with giraffes instead! We met be lovely Linda when we were in Cleveland.
