The folks over at the Fibre Company put a call out a few weeks ago for yarn ambassadors and I was chosen! What does that mean? On occasion they’ll send me some yummy yarn to try and share my thoughts here. They’re launching new colors in their yarns and they sent me over skeins of their Tundra yarn in two new colors, Sockeye Salmon (left) and Krill (right).
This yarn is insanely yummy. Tundra is made up of baby alpaca, merino wool and silk and is so squishy. So what was a girl to make? I had two skeins of each color and decided I wanted a new cowl for fall and pulled out a trusty pattern, Purl Soho’s Bandana Cowl.
I decided to use the speckled color Krill for the main body and the edging in the Sockeye Salmon color (since I wear makeup I try to stay away from lighter colors directly on my face so I don’t transfer that on the yarn). My coats always tend to be neutral and this will go beautifully with my new olive colored fall coat. I’m just waiting for colder weather! I whipped this up in just a few short hours on a Saturday afternoon over the long weekend.
So the folks at Fibre Co. are going to be showcasing their new colors on social media with the hashtags #TFCNeutrals and #TFCBrights. Clearly I’m on Team Brights so look for more from them on giveaways and info on the new colors.
So have any of you knit with Tundra? They’ve totally made me a fan!

Beau – TI – ful!!! It’s gorgeous! And the yarn looks like the color is brilliant!
I like the yarn so much, looks so soft and the salmon shade is one of my favourites! beautiful cowl too!
It’s insanely soft, if I could I would make everything with it. LOL
It looks that way! I bought some baby llama yarn recently so I think I know what you mean 😁
They could have picked no better ambassador. Love the cowl, especially in those colors.
Awww why thank you 🙂
Omg I love what I’m seeing of the Thundra. I almost feel like I’m cheating on team neutrals! I would have chosen the bandana cowl too it shows off the yarn perfectly. I love how they compliment each other too. You lucky sod!!
You’re a great choice for an ambassador! I always appreciate the enthusiasm you convey on the blog-it’s always full of joy and colour, and it’s infectous.
Why thank you!
I will have to keep that yarn and its line in mind. It looks squishy. Does the silk give it a cool to the touch factor?
I wouldn’t say it’s cool to the touch but the silk gives it a lightness and softness like nothing else. It’s fantastic and not too densely hot.
