Nitro Knitters is so excited to introduce our exclusive new made in the USA line, The Fiber Seed. This beautiful premium yarn is milled in Maine with wool from American farms and hand dyed in Florida. The dyes used are ethical and environmentally safe. Lindsay English, who is the creative genius behind the fabulous colors of The FiberSeed, believes that vibrant color, amazing yarns, and nature can live in a symbiotic relationship. One doesn't need to be sacrificed for the other. Lindsay uses American made dye with no harsh chemicals or heavy metals in order to have little to no impact on the environment. All the dyes The Fiber Seed uses conform to the Organic Trade Association's standards for Organic Fiber Processing.
There are multiple things we love about this yarn, but two really cool things are the unique Fiber Seed Sprout short striping and spiraling yarns.
This special, magical yarn can be used for socks or mittens or paired with a semi-solid yarn. It can even be used for scarves and small accessories. Sprout is 480 yds of scrumptious 90% Superwash USA Merino Wool and 10% nylon.
We also like the Seedlings collection, which are small 60 yard skeins of yarn in the same base as Sprout. Seedlings come in an array of colors and neutrals and Nitro Knitters has a wonderful selection from which to choose. These mini skeins are perfect for color work for all of your projects.
Here is a video from Lindsay and her husband Jordan talking about their yarn: http://youtu.be/iwkQGzxHyuA
The Fiber Seed yarn is so soft and beautiful and it is a wonderful addition to our selection of American hand dyers and made in the USA products. Come on by the store to see the collection and find out why we adore Lindsay and Jordan and this creative, one of a kind new line!
