We Are Smitten

Hi Everyone,
We hope you are enjoying these long and languid dog days of summer. This week we introduce a new fiber base, new kits for a new project, and made the decision to keep our treasure chest replenished.

Studio Smitten
Our latest fiber offering is Studio Smitten, a squishy, three-ply fingering-weight yarn with exquisite hand feel and stitch definition. The blend is made up of 80% Superwash Merino | 10% Cashmere | 10% Silk and is sold in 3.5-ounce (100 gram) skeins of approximately 406 yards.

This fiber is a beautifully-soft addition to our studio and is perfect for those sweater,  shawl, and other multi-season projects where drape, flexibility, and lighter-weight (density) is desirable.

Acoma Pullover
The Acoma (ACK-uh-muh) by designer Casapinka is a top-down sweater that is inspired by the pottery of the Acoma along with the beautiful skies that you see from Acoma Sky City in New Mexico. It is written to have 2” of positive ease. Two pretty lace panels separate areas of stranded knitting for a unique yoke with scalloped accents. This is a fairly fast sweater to knit, with subtle side seams and a casual fit.

The Fibre Studio has put together two Acoma kit options for this sweater. The first is in our new Studio Smitten and the second is in our Studio Sox.

Crown Jewels
While The Fibre Studio may have created these dynamic, 12-color kits for designer Casapinka’s The Crown Wools MKAL, we have decided these treasures should remain available for our customers on an on-going basis. Each of our Crown jEWEls kits contains twelve, 1-ounce skeins of our SW Merino – Fingering base, which are approximately 140 yards each (~1,680 yards total in kit).

Our color ways including Cherokee, Eastwick, Nouveau Rainbow, River Rock, Seaside, and Tourmaline. We will continue to offer these kits as an in-stock-only item in the future. With these color options, your fiber community will be green (or sapphire or citrine) with envy!

Want to know what we’re deweing? Pop in to see our studio wörks on Ravelry, Facebook (we post changes to our business hours here), and Instagram as well as on our website at thefibrestudio.com (we post changes to our business hours here).

Happy stitching, y’all!
The Ewe Crew
