Cumbria is a classic worsted weight yarn in saturated colours inspired by the lakes and hills. In combining the brown wool from English Masham with a fine Mohair from Argentina, a strength, luster and warmth is produced that is ideal for handmade staples. These two fibres are blended with a fine South American Merino to give the final yarn the softness and beautiful hand that defines The Fibre Co. yarns. The resulting light brown-grey shade is then over-dyed creating lovely deep saturated colours. The cream shade and all heathers use a natural ecru Masham. Fabrics knit from Cumbria are made for long walks across sheep-grazed fells and valleys or a homebody’s favourite sweater.
