Product Details

Inspired by England’s stunning northwest region with its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells and valleys, Fibre Company Cumbria is a lustrous blend of brown wool from the English Masham sheep breed, fine South American Merino wool and Argentine mohair. The resulting light brown-grey shade is then over-dyed, creating lovely, deep, saturated colours. Cumbria is a staple yarn, perfect for garments and accessories. 

Note: While there are dye lots listed for these yarns, there can be variances even within dye lots. We strongly recommend that you alternate skeins as you work to give an overall blended appearance.

My second sweater with this yarn. I wanted a stable yarn for an Irish knit with cables. Wanted a size 7 needle and love how the Cumbria knits up.


I purchased the Fair Hill color. I love the subtle additional colors integrated into the base color of this yarn! It is also very soft and has a wonderful hand. I am using it to knit a sweater requested by my 91 y/o Dad - the first time ever! I'm honored to be able to do this for him and am very happy with the results so far. Can't wait to finish the sweater and give it to him!


I have used this several times for hats. It looks particularly good in Greenpoint. It glows.


I knitted the Newton Pullover with Cumbria yarn. Lovely, lovely yarn. I had thought Buttermere would be more yellowish but it's actually more a greenish-yellowish color — unique and interesting.


Great yarn…


Soft, colorful and beautiful stitch definition. Only compliments on my project. I will buy this yarn again.


Nice, rustic yarn that will fill out nicely when blocked. Bouncy.


So warm and soft (for wool). Way better than doubling with a separate strand of mohair. There are occasional inconsistencies with weight (i.e. noticible joins that are doubly thick for ~1""). The dye has a lot of dimension and different tones to it as well, even in the neutral shades.
