Inspired by England’s stunning North West region with its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells and valleys, Cumbria is a lustrous blend of brown wool from the English Masham sheep breed, fine South American Merino wool and Argentine Mohair. The resulting light brown-grey shade is then over-dyed creating lovely deep saturated colours. Cumbria is a staple yarn, perfect for garments and accessories alike.
This is the worsted weight version of Cumbria. It has a rustic but soft handle and is versatile in its gauge.
