Developed to be evocative of the mood, light, and places that characterize the Northwest of the United Kingdom, Cumbria is a classic worsted weight yarn in saturated colors inspired by the lakes and hills. In combining the brown wool from English Masham with a fine Mohair from Argentina, a strength, lustre, and warmth is produced that is ideal for handmade staples. These two fibers are blended with a fine South American Merino to give the final yarn the softness and beautiful hand that defines The Fibre Co. yarns. Fabrics knit from Cumbria are made for long walks across the sheep-grazed fells and valleys or a homebody’s favorite sweater.
