The new Acadia Collection from Kelbourne Woolens features 6 gorgeous sweaters that are our pick for the next knitalong. There’s a cardigan vest, two short sleeved tops, two long sleeved pullovers, and a ruana – all with an elegant simplicity and all made with the natural, un-dyed shades of The Fibre Company’s Acadia yarn. Pick your favorite, cast on, and knit yourself a new spring sweater with us!

All six garments will be in the shop from Saturday, March 12 to Sunday, March 20. Come in to see and feel them in person, and to make your pick. Acadia yarn will be 15% off (in-store and online with code ACKAL) while the trunk show is here.

If you’ve never knit with Acadia before, you’re in for a real treat. It’s blend of merino wool, baby alpaca, and silk has colors that glow and is incredibly soft. If you’re already a fan of Acadia, here’s an excuse to knit with it again (that is, if you even needed one!).

Hope you’ll knit along with us!
