By Popular Demand


The response to the sneak peek of Volume 3 of the Scrumptious Collection has been so huge that we couldn't resist sharing just a little bit more before we plough on with adding final touches to release preparations. Thank you for all the great responses and excitement that you've shown. It's nice to know that it's not just us who can't wait for this Volume to hit the shop! 


Here's some of our current favourite pictures making us smile as we eagerly wait for the first prints to arrive at Fyberspates HQ. It's honestly as bad as waiting for Father Christmas. Well.... almost!

Something New

Things are busy as ever here at Fyberspates as we wind down 2013 and get ready for some BIG things coming up in 2014. The first of which is going to be a brand new Scrumptious Collection!

We're busy plotting a release that will include a Blog and Podcast Tour, some giveaways and promotions and some knit-alongs. We're so excited! While we put the finishing touches on the Collection (and devour some more mince pies to fuel us through this month) here is a little sneak peek of what to expect.....


Keep your eyes peeled over the coming month as we'll be sharing little tasters both here, the Facebook page and our Ravelry group to make sure everyone is as excited as we are!

Colours of Shetland

(c) Kate Davies Designs

We are thrilled to be able to announce that Fyberspates are now the official distributors of 'Colours of Shetland' by Kate Davies across the US and Canada. Her dedication to sharing her passion for Real Wool as well as documenting textile history has made her a favourite amongst knitters and fibre artists; something we have long admired. Her design work has a cult following amongst knitters who are drawn to its' intricate Fair Isle and motifs that instantly bring Shetland to mind. It is a pleasure to be distributing such wonderful book. 

'Puffin', (c) Kate Davies Designs

With its beautiful photography, engaging writing, and signature hand-knit designs, Colours of Shetland will inspire you with the varied shades and hues of Britain’s most northerly isles. The book brings the creative process of hand-knit design to life in an exciting new way. In Colours of Shetland, Kate takes you on a northern journey, exploring wild and beautiful island landscapes through words, projects and pictures. Situated in the rich context of the Shetland places, wildlife, objects and people that have inspired Kate, each design in this book has its own engaging ‘colour story’ to tell.

'Stevenson Gauntlets & Sweater', (c) Kate Davies Designs

Through the pages of this book, you will get a taste of the heritage that makes Shetland one of the world’s most knitterly destinations, and be inspired to knit with yarn that has a genuine connection to the landscape in which it is produced. Showcasing Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight, the flagship Shetland yarn with a marvellously varied palette, each project features the clear instructions and attention to detail that are hallmarks of Kate’s designs.

'Scatness Tam', (c) Kate Davies Designs

Alongside ten original patterns that are a joy to make and wear, Colours of Shetland offers the hand-knitter food for thought and a feast for the eyes.

Fyberspates USA

BIG news!

Up until now, Fyberspates Scrumptious range has been made available thanks to Lantern Moon, our distributors. While Lantern Moon have done a great job in getting our brand recognised Lantern Moon has decided to focus more on their core products, and in turn we have made the decision to go our separate ways. 

Gleem Lace, now available for wholesale

What is very exciting is that we are setting up our own distribution centre in the USA, which will start shipping out to stores directly from February 2014. All of our much loved Scrumptious range will be available, as well as Vivacious and Gleem wholesale lines for the first time in the USA!

Vivacious DK, now available for wholesale

As you can imagine, this is an extremely exciting time to set things up in a way that works best for us as distributors and also for our customers overseas. We are delighted to say that we have now put together a strong US team and are in the process of setting up a FyberspatesUSA website. This will provide information for retail customers, together with a shopping cart system for wholesale customers allowing you to place your orders online for prompt despatch.

Vivacious 4ply, now available for wholesale

If you would like to receive further details and digital shade cards of any of our wholesale yarns, please do not hesitate to contact us via the Fyberspates website, via our US based Sales Manager or
