The Fibre Co's Terra Yarn in Iron
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 fibres and colour of this carefully crafted yarn. With colours inspired by nature’s palette and fibres selected for their natural beauty. Terra’s creation originated from The Fibre Co's 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 colours of various fibres.
