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

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, (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, (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 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
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…
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.
