Cumbria – Saddleback Slate

Availability : Out of stock
Non Superwash
Cumbria is inspired by England’s stunning northwest region with its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells and valleys. It is a classic worsted weight yarn from a blend of fine Merino, wool from the English Masham sheep breed and Argentinian mohair. The Merino adds softness, the Masham allows for a beautiful heathered palette and the mohair creates strength and lustre. Fabrics knit from Cumbria are soft yet strong, making it a perfect yarn for everyday knitwear. Many of the shades in Cumbria use a base with natural brown Masham wool, which when overdyed, allows for beautifully deep saturated tones.
