From The Fibre Company
“Unto the Hills”
This yarn was born from the love of long walks across sheep-grazed fells and valleys. Developed to be evocative of the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the UK, Cumbria is a classic worsted weight yarn in 14 colours inspired by the lakes and hills.

Long walks require sturdy handmades and so the search for a new blend of fibres began. In combining the brown wool from the English Masham sheep breed with a fine Mohair from Peru, a strength, lustre and warmth is produced that is ideal for special knitwear. These two fibres are worked with a super fine South American Merino to give the final yarn the softness and beautiful hand that defines The Fibre Co yarns.

Blending, a central part of The Fibre Company’s process, results in new possibilities both for creating fabric and developing new colour. By respecting each natural characteristic that a fibre brings to the final yarn, the saturated colours on our Cumbria range are the result of the different ways in which each fibre takes on colour. The effect is reminiscent of a hand dyed effect, adding a depth that works up into beautiful hues. Each colour recipe works in harmony with the light grey-brown tones and shifts that are the outcome of combining these fibres in their raw form.

Cumbria is a yarn for sweaters and staple accessories in colours that complement one another and add new possibilities for makers and crafters. The Fibre Co has sourced the best quality, responsibly produced fibres with your handmade wardrobe in mind. Inspired by nature and developed with a deep love of the natural fibres, Cumbria is a yarn for adventurers and homebodies alike.
