Blended with Merino from South America, Brown Masham Wool from the North of England and Mohair from Argentina, this yarn has impeccable credentials. We are utterly spellbound by this lush yarn from The Fibre Co.
Cumbria is a classic Worsted Weight yarn in saturated colours inspired by the lakes and hills of its namesake. 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 Fibre Co'sstory began in 2003 in an old warehouse on the working waterfront of Portland, Maine, USA with a small spinning mill, lots of raw natural fibre and owner/founder Daphne Marinopoulos' vision of creating yarns that she couldn't find on the retail shelves.
From these humble beginnings to today's global brand now based in the United Kingdom, The Fibre Co works with a variety of producers and artisans to continue creating yarns that delight and inspire the enthusiast maker.
