Yarn review of Tundra by Knit a Bit of Whimsy

On My Needles …

Today I’ve got some super squishy Tundra yarn from The Fibre Co on my needles.  It’s a mix of baby alpaca, merino and silk, and oh my goodness, is it soft and awesome! Note: I received 4 skeins of yarn in return for sharing  photos on social media; my opinions are entirely my own.

What I love even more than the luxury feel of this yarn, is the story behind it. The Fibre Co uses natural fibres in all their yarns, they don’t use superwash processes, and they focus on sustainability. They know where their raw materials come from, and work closely with everyone through the yarn-making process from shepherds and mills to the yarn shops that sell their yarns and designers who use their yarns.

Mittens the Kitten approves of this yarn!

I’ve done a little swatching with the yarn I received, and I’m very pleased with how it works up. It holds its shape nicely, shows both cables and lace well (as much as you can create lace with Bulky yarn!), and might be even softer after knitting than it was in the skein! I think I’ve got an idea for a cowl using some of this squishy goodness 🙂

Overall, I’m completely sold on this yarn! It’s soft and lofty, sustainably produced, and it comes in a range of 20 colours (including the brand new Berents Sea and Blue Lagoon that they sent me). And I’ve always been partial to bulky yarns – they work up so quickly!

  1. Ooo I can’t wait to see what you make from the yarn that Swatch looks so interesting. Mittens is gorgeous! I’m jealous I only have toddlers and bunnies no cute kittens

    1. Haha, thank you Nadia! My kids fell in love with Mittens, but my husband was a little hesitant … I tried to tell him that she was also an excellent business investment! 😛 Needless to say, she came home with us!
      Bunnies and toddlers … those sound awfully adorable, too! 🙂

  2. […] The inspiration for this cowl was the yarn sent to me from The Fibre Co. I was chosen as a yarn ambassador for them in August, and they sent me two of their latest colorways: Barents Sea and Blue Lagoon on their Tundra base (it’s absolutely lovely – I’ve written about it once already here).
