Fibreshare and the Yarns I’m Secretly Dreaming About

Last fall I encountered some very interesting pictures on Instagram. Apparently, people were exchanging these cute little packages by post, full of yarn and other craft related goodies. That’s how I found out about Fibreshare which is “…an international yarn and fiber swap open to all crafts”. It seems like a great way to connect with crafters from all over the world on a slightly deeper level than it is common on social media or blogs. You get to know two people you’re assigned to based on common interests and tastes. I think that sounds pretty awesome, don’t you?

To do this, you need to sign up and pay a small fee. You need to fill out several questions about yourself and your passion for craft. After some consideration, I decided to sign up for knitting as it seems to be my focus as of late.

The questions made me think about my preferences and what yarns I’m secretly dreaming about getting and I thought it would be nice to share some of them with you.

If you worked with any of these yarns, make sure to comment and let me know how you liked it!

  • Eden Cottage Yarns

I’ve been drooling over Eden Cottage Yarns for a long time now. The colors are simply amazing! The company resides in Yorkshire and is using a lot of Brittish wool. It’s a sustainable, nature friendly business. The owner Victoria hand dyes the yarns in her own kitchen sink!

  • Meadow by The Fibre Co.

The Fibre Co. was originally founded in Portland, Maine, but then it was moved to Cumbria in the United Kingdom. They have a very wide selection of natural yarns. Meadow caught my eye because of its rustic character.

  • Lettlopi by Alafoss

Lettlopi is a famous Icelandic yarn, commonly used for knitting a lopi sweater. Lopi is a classic Icelandic yoke sweater. Again, the colors are simply amazing and it looks so airy and soft!

  • Celtic Colours by S Twist Wool

Celtic Colours is Irish yarn at its best. The secret to their amazingly bright and unusual colors is overdyeing naturally light and dark grey Jacob wool with the same colour.

There’s a lot more of yarns that I’m dreaming about getting, but that would lead to a veeery long article.

Are there any yarns that you’re dreaming about getting?

    Fibreshare sounds awesome, I think I’ll give it a try too in the next round! Not very indie but I always wanted to try Madelintosh and Juniper Mon Farm yarns. And also Woolly Mammoth Fibre yarn – they are all hand dyed with natural dyes only and I absolutely love the colours of these yarns. The owner announces the dates when the shop is updated on Instagram and then you have to hurry to buy something as they are sold our very quickly!
