Abundant Earth Fiber's Renew is a DK-weight, worsted-spun 3ply, all of which contribute greatly to its fantastic stitch definition. The yarn shines in stockinette, cables and texture!
It's a small batch yarn at its best - Lydia and Alan from Abundant Earth Fiber source their fleeces for Renew exclusively in the US (where they are based) and then spin this deliciously round DK weight yarn in their own mill. They even hand-dye the fabulous, jewel-toned colors!

We just adore small batch yarns. Their stories are so different, and individual, and Abundant Earth Fiber's Renew is no different.
It's sourced entirely in the US - 100% wool, non-superwash and plastic-free -, and spun by Lydia and Alan in their mill on Whidbey Island, Washington, in the US. Lydia hand-dyes the grey heathered base in the most beautiful tones - they shine and have incredible depth!
Abundant Earth Fiber is an essential part of the fiber community in their area, supporting small businesses and family farms alike with their work and knowledge (something we absolutely love!).
Pattern Recommendations for Abundant Earth Fiber Renew:
Muscadine by Andrea Gaughan combines traditional intricate cable motifs with a modern fit and minimalist style to create a sweater worthy of becoming an heirloom piece. With its cropped length and raglan construction, it's perfect for pairing with high-waisted jeans or over a linen dress!
The sweater is worked top down, with a comfortable, relaxed fit and slightly cropped length.
Spending time walking through woodland areas and pausing to take a moment to stand at the base of the enormous trees. Looking up and following the branches as they stretch out above me. The winding branches of these magnificent trees inspired this hat, Among the Trees, designed by Makenzie Alvarez. This perspective of the tree trunks fading away and branches stretching out into a vast canopy is recreated with all-over cables.
Pyrite by Hanna Maciejewska is a boxy pullover with deep v-neck, ¾ length sleeves and all over cables. It is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up, starting with the long ribbed hem, then worked in rounds up to the armholes, where stitches for back and fronts are separated and worked flat, up to the shoulders.
