As the founding yarn of The Fibre Co.’s luxury blends, Terra is the original hank that all other yarn lines grew from. Created by blending alpaca, merino and silk noil, Terra is an impossibly soft aran weight yarn that is perfect for nestling against the skin. The subtle duotone shades that kettle dyeing creates work in harmony with the soft single ply to showcase the interplay of fibers and color of this carefully crafted yarn. Terra draws together two great loves—colors inspired by nature’s palette and fibers selected for their natural beauty. Terra’s creation originated from The Fibre Co. founder Daphne’s early work hand blending at the carding machine in her small mill in Maine. In pursuit of the softest and most luxurious feeling yarn, Daphne explored the way in which dye reacted to the different natural colors of various fibers. These early experiments in hand blending and dye work have informed the process at The Fibre Co. ever since.
