Introducing Ampersand Fibers

Ampersand Fibers was created in an effort to find the perfect yarn - rustic, yet soft to the touch; comfortable, yet hard-wearing and long-lasting. After over a year in the making, Ampersand Fibers has finally come to life! Created for, and only available at La Mercerie.

Available on Caslon Fingering and Jenson DK.

US Sourced and spun

We worked with Battenkill Fibers in upstate New York to create and produce this yarn. The team at Battenkill is committed to supporting the US wool industry and sources all its raw wool from family-owned, local farms.

This wool is not meant to have the same smooth and refined look as the mass-produced bases that are so common among indie-dyers, but is instead meant to celebrate the true character behind the wool - rustically spun and ready to be knit into an heirloom piece.

100% single breed, corriedale wool

The yarn is 100% Corriedale, a breed originally developed from cross-breeding the fine wool of Merino sheep with the long wool of Lincoln sheep - resulting in a yarn that is soft to the touch, yet durable and strong. The longer staple length of the wool means that it is less prone to pilling over time.

Considered a medium wool, Corriedale is extremely versatile and can be used in a wide variety of projects from sweaters to hats to socks.
