Fyberspates is a yarn company who focus on texture and colour. They love strong vibrant hues contrasted with soft metallic greys. They believe that texture is important to show off colour and their hand dyes are made specifically not to distract from the fabrics created with their yarns. Their solids shades range from zingy silk blends in Scrumptious to soft pillowy textures in their Cumulus. They create yarn that makes people happy from skein to garment.
Cumulus – a heavy lace/3 ply weight yarn, has a glistening silk core with a gentle halo of supersoft alpaca like soft pillowy clouds hence the name Cumulus. This yarn is a delight to knit with, an alternative to mohair, the combination of the delicate alpaca halo and the smooth silk core creates the softest knits with a beautiful drape and a delicate haze without being itchy.
