The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers: Our UK Exclusive

It’s new, it’s here and it’s exclusive to us in the UK and Europe… it’s The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers!

Adapted from a previous newsletter – subscribe to our newsletter here.

We started our small collection with Soka’pii and Mighty Mo, but soon realised we had to try more! At long last our big long-awaited delivery of four bases from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers from Montana arrived at our door. 


Soka’pii

Soka’pii, (pronounced ‘Sue-copy’), is the Blackfeet word for ‘good’ – and this yarn is much more than good! The 100% Rambouillet wool has a subtle thick and thin character, with an interesting texture and knitting experience.

What to knit: Rayado

The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers collaborated with designer Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knitworks to create a slow release of patterns called the Ghost Town Collection. One of those patterns is Rayado – a rustic and romantic triangular shawl.

View the pattern on Ravelry.

Pick up a bundle of Caitlin’s original sample colourways here, with our curated alternative combinations popping up on there as soon as we’ve picked out our faves!


Mighty Mo

Mighty Mo, (Named after the Mighty Missouri River), is a luscious 70% Kid Mohair, 30% Mulberry Silk in a lace weight. Mix a strand of this with any yarn for extra soft texture!

What to knit: Gallatin Wraparound

Gallatin Wraparound by Andrea Hungerford from By Hand Serial Lookbook #10 features Mighty Mo as a combined strand for that added extra texture.

Chic and cosy! View the pattern on Ravelry.


Pishkun

Pishkun is a staple base from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers – a combination of heavy DK and light worsted yarn. This versatile, plump fibre creates soft yet sturdy garments.

What to knit: Sisters United Socks

Cosy boot socks with a difference – 100% of the proceeds of this Boyland Knitworks sock pattern goes towards Sisters United MT!
The pattern is available here.

If you’d like to go one step further, you can also donate finished socks to Sisters United MT’s Healing Bundles for Indigenous women in need.

What to knit: Eye Catcher

Eye Catcher by Jennifer Berg from Making No. 8 / Forest is a beautifully rustic yet stylish beanie hat. We love the original colourways of the beanie so much that we’ve put together bundles for this knit in ‘Elk Antler’ and ‘Eagle Eye’.

View the pattern on Ravelry.

PS… we might be getting some copies of that fab Making Magazine too…


Oh Dang!

Finishing with a bang with Oh Dang! Buttery soft, smooth to work with 74% Suri Alpaca and 26% Silk. This is a great alternative to those who are sensitive to Mohair but still want to get the feathery texture in your knits.

What to knit: Engle

Another addition to the Ghost Town Collection collaboration with Boyland Knitworks is the super light Engle! The rustic patterned yoke stands out on this cosy season-shifting pullover.

View this pattern on Ravelry.

We’ve got bundles for this sweet sweater in the works and coming soon here – but feel free to grab your own four colourways and beat us to the punch!


Sisters United MT

It’s not just Candice’s yarns we love – we also support her charity Sisters United MT!
