With the &Make, The Fibre Co. set out to create a yarn range for stitchers at every stage of their crafting journey, made from 100% natural, sustainable fibres from renewable sources. &Make has a stunning full palette of cheerful brights and nuanced shades created by overdyeing a range of naturally light and dark coloured fibres. Each of the &Make range yarns include Fairtrade hard-wearing Peruvian Highland wool in the blend. This wool was recommended by Fibre Co.'s partner mill in Peru with whom they have worked for nearly 20 years. &Make support the work of the fair trade suppliers of this wool and has the Peru Fair Trade logo on their labels.
For their DK &Make yarn, the Fibre Co. added linen to soft alpaca and strong Highland wool, and it really adds a crispness to the stitch definition, making it a perfect yarn for textured stitch patterns - popping purls, crisp crochet, sharp stitches in every craft - this is a versatile 2 ply yarn great for sweaters and accessories.
