Purchase Cumbria from our online shop or from your local stockist of The Fibre Co. Not sure what colourway to choose? Our shade cards make colour choice super simple!

In celebration of her move to England, our founder Daphne developed our Cumbria yarn to be evocative of the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the United Kingdom.

It is a classic worsted weight yarn in saturated colours inspired by the lakes and hills. Fabrics knit from Cumbria are made for long walks across sheep-grazed fells and valleys or a homebody’s favourite sweater.

In combining wool from English Masham with 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 to create lovely deep saturated colours. The cream shade (White Heather) and all heathered shades use a natural ecru Masham instead.
