Brand Spotlight: Blue Sky Fibers


Blue Sky Fibers has been a passion project since the company started with a small backyard alpaca herd. What started with a few alpacas has now grown to include wool, organic cotton, silk and cashmere. Their aim is to get the best quality fibers in the hands of their customers. Blue Sky Fibers started as a pet project shortly after owner/founder Linda Niemeyer graduated from college. She was struck with curious intent for alpacas which soon led her to purchase one. With her new pet and ample amounts of yarn, she visited a nearby yarn store and she was off. All of a sudden she had a business on her hands.

Their yarn selection ranges from fingering to super bulky, and their color palette boasts deliciously wearable earth tones.

Today Blue Sky Fibers is a worldwide company crafting the highest quality fibers and patterns that everyone loves. It is a perfect medium for your next project.

 If you’re new to knitting with Blue Sky Fibers, here are a few recommendations to get you started:

 

Woolstok Light

Woolstok light is a great introduction to Blue Sky Fibers. It is made of Fine Highland Wool and is soft to the touch. It also allows for a beautiful stitch definition for those projects you’re especially proud of. It comes in a wide array of shades and the 50g hanks are great for colorwork and textured stitches.

Alpaca Silk Yarn

Blue Sky Fibers has a yarn selection that ranges from delicately soft to big and bulky. Offering mostly earth tone colors, they pull beauty from nature. Alpaca Silk Yarn perfectly represents their fiber design. It is a satiny-like blend of silk and alpaca. This yarn lends itself to a vibrant matte and drapes gracefully. It is perfect for scarves and wraps.
