Cumbria - Buttermere
The Fibre Company's Cumbria is a classic worsted weight yarn in saturated colours inspired by the countryside of the Northwest United Kingdom. In combining the brown wool from English Masham with a fine Mohair from Argentina, a strength, lustre and warmth is produced that is ideal for handmade staples. These two fibres are blended with a fine South American Merino to give the final yarn the softness and beautiful hand that defines The Fibre Co. yarns. The resulting light brown-grey shade is then over-dyed creating lovely deep saturated colours. The cream shade and all heathers use a natural ecru Masham.
Made in Peru.
