Happy Birthday to us!
Today marks the 4th birthday of Qing Fibre, the independent hand-dyed yarn company by Layla Qing.
We have tons of fun celebrations throughout this month to join in with, so keep your eyes peeled for what we are up to!
4 fun facts about the lovely lady behind Qing Fibre
Layla started Qing Fibre back in 2016 while on the hunt for crazy yarn. She wanted vibrant colours, explosions of colour, neons and beautiful hues fading into one another. Layla started to experiment and dye her own colourways, and slowly started to create the Qing Fibre signature style, influenced by the whole spectrum of colour, leaving no colour out. Our colour library is HUGE, from fluorescent pinks to moody blues and greys - there is something to suit everyone's taste.
Vera and Veranita are Layla's latest fluffy cashmere yarn bases, named after her adorable daughter Vera. Layla wanted something special for people who are a little sensitive to some yarns and created this beautiful 100% Cashmere base, it is so soft to the touch and suitable for the most sensitive of skins.
But that's not the end of it, Layla is a knitting machine! You will always find her buried under a ton of yarn, knitting up something new. Layla loves to knit up our patterns and new ideas in miniature - yes you read that right minature! We're sure that Vera's doll collection has a lavish knitted wardrobe, we've seen the Micro Mini Mochi jumper!
Our Monday meetings normally consist of a sneak peek of Layla's latest creations, new designs, new colourways.. trust us there is never a dull moment here. Layla's inspiration comes from a wide variety of sources including art by Julien Marinetti architecture by Frank Gehry and of course food by Christina Tosi!
So in true Qing Fibre fashion, Layla wanted to treat everyone to a slice of our very own Birthday cake. Whether you like Chocolate, Pistachio, Strawberry or the world of Sprinkles she's made it all with our Limited Edition Birthday Cake colourways!
Inspired by the cake by the Queen of Birthday cakes, Christina Tosi's Milk Bar Birthday Cake! Who doesn't love cake and yarn?! Grab your Birthday Cake kit now on our online shop
