&Make is The Fibre Co.'s response to the staggering increase in the number of new yarn crafters that came out of the pandemic. Yarn for stitchers at every stage of their crafting journey, made from 100% natural, sustainable fibers from renewable sources, at an affordable price. &Make has a stunning full palette of cheerful brights and nuanced shades created by overdyeing a range of naturally light and dark colored fibers.
The first set of yarns for the &Make range each include Fairtrade hard-wearing Peruvian Highland wool in the blend. This wool was recommended by The Fibre Co.’s partner mill in Peru with whom they’ve worked for nearly 20 years. They’re proud to support the work of the fair trade suppliers of this wool and to include the Peru Fair Trade logo on the &Make labels.
