Elemental Sport from North Bay Fiber
We are so pleased to bring you Elemental Sport, a soft (21-micron!), swoonworthy 3-ply beauty that is sourced in Campbell County, Wyoming; spun in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and dyed in Pinconning, Michigan. North Bay Fiber, a family business based in Pinconning, is the brainchild of Jill Zielinskii (aka Knitterella), who translated her long experience designing and working in the fiber industry into a line of truly unique yarns that will transform your crafting.
If you've never tried Cormo, this yarn will make you a believer: it's a lustrous, springy fiber that works up with exceptional stitch definition and next-to-skin softness. Elemental Sport, with a fine twist that reduces pilling, is dyed in deep, vibrant hues that will make your work a pleasure. Make long-lasting garments and accessories where your knitting or crocheting will shine!
