Cumbria in a classic worsted weight, is a sturdy still soft to the touch yarn, suitable for all your favourite fall and winter warmers.
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.
