In celebration of her move to England, Daphne, the founder of The Fibre Company, developed Cumbria to be evocative of the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the United Kingdom. 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, lustre 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 or a homebody’s favourite sweater. This is a beautifully soft, woolly wool with plenty of structure in the yarn.
