The Story Behind Blue Sky Fibers

Exciting things are happening here and in the upcoming weeks you will start to see changes. Blue Sky Alpacas is joining forces with Spud & Chloë and getting a makeover in the process. No worries, we will continue to have all of the same yarn and patterns that you already know and love, we’re just adding some more.

We’re changing our name to Blue Sky Fibers to reflect the wide range of fibers that we use in our yarn. But did you know that we began as a small herd of alpacas? Linda Niemeyer started the company in 1997 with a few alpacas at her house, so the Blue Sky Alpacas name worked well at that point. While the company evolved she focused on what she loved: the yarn! As we developed new yarns, we began integrating additional fibers.

We’ve grown a lot since then. Since our backyard beginnings, we’ve become a favorite of yarn shops and fiber enthusiasts internationally. While we’ve always focused on luxury yarn and kept a soft spot in our hearts for alpaca, our collections now encompass many more fibers including wool, organic cotton, and silk.

So what’s this mean for you? Spud and Chloë’s social sites are moving over to join Blue Sky Alpacas. We’re adding a new line of 100% Fine Highland Wool yarn called Woolstok, and a whole bunch of new patterns. We’ll be done making changes in June, can’t wait to show it off!
