    We are so happy and thrilled that Blue Sky named this stunning pattern in honour of our shop here on Richmond Hill!

    This raglan pullover moves the colour work to the sleeves for a new twist on an old classic! Using seven of our favourite Woolstok Light colours, this intermediate piece is designed for that perfect fit in this STUNNING new yarn by Blue Sky Fibers.

    No risk of being stranded on boring sleeve island with this beauty!

    OUR STORY by Blue Sky Fibers

    Creating consciously crafted fibers and patterns is more than just our focus, it’s our passion. Ever since we started with a small herd of alpacas in our backyard, we’ve been committed to making yarn in the best way possible to show off its natural beauty.

    And while our exclusive offerings have grown beyond alpaca to include wool, organic cotton and silk, our desire for getting makers of all stripes excited about natural fibers and knitting hasn’t changed one bit. It all winds back to the yarn, ensuring that every precious, handmade hank is lovingly filled with endless inspiration.

    Blue Sky Fibers started as a pet project, of sorts. Shortly after graduating college, owner/founder Linda Niemeyer's curious preoccupation with Alpacas led to her buying one. Soon Linda found herself with a lot of yarn on hand. She took it to a nearby yarn store, which was willing to buy and sell it. And the rest, as they say, is history.

    Today Blue Sky Fibers is known worldwide for its consciously crafted collection of high-quality natural fibers and patterns. One can only imagine how things might have turned out differently had Linda been obsessed with giraffes instead.
