The Fibre Company Meadow is the perfect combination of four luxurious fibres: merino, baby llama, silk and linen, spun into a 3 ply yarn that’s slightly heavier than a typical lace weight yarn. This blend of fibres and structure makes for a versatile yarn that works well on a variety of needle sizes and a wide array of projects. The crisp hand and stitch definition of linen with the sheen of silk is perfectly complimented by the softness of baby llama and merino. A yarn for fibre lovers who like a treat on the needles and for their handmades.

Heavy Lace/light 4ply

Meadow is probably one of my favourites in the shop. The blend of fibres (merino, llama, silk, linen) makes for a soft, light and drapey fabric, and makes the colours nicely heathered. I have made a lavender cardigan by Libby Jonson called Huia and got gauge which was 27stitches on 3.25mm needles. Perfect garment fabric, dense enough to wear well, but light enough to drape beautifully on the body. Also in the shop is Helen's Kagerou vest which has a fit that seems to suit everyone and with the generous meterage of Meadow, you only need 1.5 skeins for the medium. Kagerou uses 2.75mm for the rib and 4mm for the body, so quite a versatile yarn.
