The Fibre Co. developed Cumbria Fingering with a nod to the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the United Kingdom. The brown wool from English Masham is blended with a fine Mohair from Argentina that adds strength, lustre and warmth. 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 Fingering are perfect for lighter weight garments and accessories alike. This is a beautifully soft, woolly wool with plenty of structure in the yarn.

At 10g per skein minis are perfect for colourwork or on their own - they're perfect for adding a touch of colour anywhere - contrast stripes, details on pockets, even wool embroidery (we'd love to see a stripey beanie!)
