In our last post, Firefly’s No Fly Fiber List, we highlighted a few fibers we find to be in the danger zone. As it is our mission to bring you the best in natural fibers, there were some fibers we had to cut. But, we are excited to bring you a growing list of fibers that will be available from Firefly.
Oh so many different wool out there and we love them. Our favorites? Just check this list out!
Super Wash Merino that you can throw in the washer!
Blue Faced Leicester wool, for soft yet strong fiber (great for sock yarn without the plastics!)
Alpaca wool, for silky soft hypoallergenic wool.
Cashmere, to feel like a queen
Yak wool, which is warmer and softer than most sheep wool.
Wool fiber is resilient and breathable in warm and cool climates. And, it loves dye. It absorbs color deeply for rich vibrancy, without the need to use chemicals. This makes wool a great all around natural fiber.
Our premium, vegan yarn! We are excited to bring you vegan and vibrant organic cotton yarn. Cotton has a rich history throughout the world. Currently, this plant has the most destructive pesticides used in cultivation. These pesticides are destructive to the soil and any natural ecosystem. Enter, organic cotton! Grown without the use of harsh pesticides, you can still enjoy the light and soft cotton fiber knowing that it is grown with with the environment in mind.
We will be offering recycled fabric yarns, from blue jean factory leftovers, cotton cloths and saris, we can help re-use fiber that otherwise would go to waste!
Linen and Hemp
We are working with suppliers to supply linen and hemp vegan options. Linen is a great lightweight fiber that gets softer with use. Hemp is the strongest fiber in the world but is still soft and light!
See anything you are excited about? Let us know what your favorite fiber to work with is!
