The Fibre Co.

Amble – Saddleback Slate

Availability : Out of stock
The Fibre Co.'s unique fibre blends is why so many of us love their yarns, and when they announced a new take on the traditional sock yarn - did we sit up and pay attention! We knew this had to be something very different from everything else available.

When The Fibre Co. set out to design a sock yarn, they stayed true to their guiding principle of harnessing the beauty that nature provides in a way that is gentle on our planet. To whole heartedly be able to stand behind such a yarn, they waited until a recycled nylon and an alternative to the standard chlorine processed washable wools became available. Amble, the end result is a soft yet durable yarn from Merino wool and alpaca fibres processed with an eco-friendly anti-shrinkage Easy-wash treatment. The recycled nylon adds strength and durability. Daphne of The Fibre Co. named this yarn Amble to reflect the kind of slow relaxed walking they enjoy hwhere based in the English Lake District. The shades are borrowed from the successful palette in The Fibre Co.'s Cumbria yarn with the cream and all heathers using a natural ecru Suri alpaca whilst the others use a natural brown Suri alpaca.
