Inspired by England's stunning northwest region with its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells and valleys, Cumbria by The Fibre Company is a lustrous blend of 30% brown masham wool from rare breed sheep, 60% fine South American merino wool, and 10% mohair. The resulting light brown-grey shade is then over dyed creating lovely deep saturated colors. Cumbria is a staple yarn, perfect for garments and accessories alike.
