Introducing “Stowe”

Category: New Stuff

Here is a fresh new pattern perfect for spring knitting!


Stowe is a v-neck tee with a touch of mesh lace at the sleeves.  Stowe is knit up in Serena, our baby alpaca – pima cotton blend, and is perfect for spring weather as it is lightweight and whisper-soft.  Our sample is shown here in S2680 Sea Urchin. There are so many colors to choose from, which will you put to your needles?


Stowe is part of our Spring 2012 collection, and available to purchase for download through Ravelry or at your local yarn store. Our Spring 2012 collection includes five more garments – we are looking forward to sharing them with you!

LE7: Blue Skies Ahead

Category: Clasica LE Colorways

The grey days of winter seem to be behind us, and we have blue skies ahead.  With the change in seasons the air seems a little fresher, we might spot a rainbow or two and we can look forward to beautiful sunsets (or sunrises, if you are an early bird)!  Santiago has captured this in LE7, take a look!


Our Wool Clasica Limited-Edition color series is only available for a limited time – now is the time to stock up!

You may view past & current LE colors on Ravelry, Facebook and the Fairmount Fibers Website.
