Cumbria Worsted was inspired by England’s stunning northwest region with its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells and valleys, the home of The Fibre Co. A lustrous blend of brown wool from the English Masham sheep breed, fine South American merino wool with Argentine mohair, results in Cumbria's base colour a light brown-grey shade which is then over-dyed creating lovely deep saturated colours.
Cumbria is a staple yarn, it's a worsted weight making it perfect for knitting garments and accessories alike.
