Part of the Fell Garth Collection by Emma Wright for The Fibre Co., Brenna is a mixed stitch cowl worked in three of our favourite colours of Cumbria: Buttermere, Scafell Pike and Hadrian’s Wall.

The Fell Garth Collection is born from a love for beautiful handmades with a practical purpose. Each piece is worked in Cumbria or Cumbria Fingering yarns that were created to be evocative of the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the UK. All of the pieces in the collection feature rich textures from cables and twisted stitches.
