Our Story

Creating consciously crafted fibers and patterns is more than just our focus, it’s our passion. Ever since we started with a small herd of alpacas in our backyard, we’ve been committed to making yarn in the best way possible to show off its natural beauty. And while our exclusive offerings have grown beyond alpaca to include wool, organic cotton, silk and cashmere, our desire for getting makers of all stripes excited about natural fibers and knitting hasn’t changed one bit. It all winds back to the yarn, ensuring that every precious, handmade hank is lovingly filled with endless inspiration.

Blue Sky Fibers started as a pet project, of sorts. Shortly after graduating college, owner/founder Linda Niemeyer's curious preoccupation with Alpacas led to her buying one. Soon Linda found herself with a lot of yarn on hand. She took it to a nearby yarn store, which was willing to buy and sell it. And the rest, as they say, is history. Today Blue Sky Fibers is known worldwide for its consciously crafted collection of high-quality natural fibers and patterns. One can only imagine how things might have turned out differently had Linda been obsessed with giraffes instead.

Inspired Travels

Our most recent trip took us to Puno, Peru, to meet the source of our Woolstok wool. The textures and colors of this craggy, unspoiled terrain have inspired spinners, dyers, weavers and knitters for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Needless to say, they've inspired us too.
