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.

I love this yarn! Yes, it is harsh feeling while knitting. Yes, it splits easily while knitting. Despite that, when the project is complete....wow! It is worth the little bit of extra effort to not split the yarn. And after washing, the yarn is soft. You will love your finished item!

I am feeling ambivalent about this yarn: I like the color and the idea that this is a more traditional yarn,not a lifeless superwash. I am knitting a sweater with it. It is too rough for next to skin wear, to my taste. I think it will be OK over a turtleneck, or a shirt. I would not wear a hat or a scarf made with it. It does have some black guard hairs, not too many.I also find it to be quite splitty, which makes it less convenient for cabling without a cable needle - I have to be very careful. There is some fuzz/halo to it, too, due to addition of Mohair. Some may view it as boon, some as a deterrent, as it makes for lesser stitch definition. Pretty sure I will not buy it again.

I bought more! I love this yarn.

Comments about THE FIBRE CO. Cumbria:

This is the first yarn I have used from this company. I love it! It is very soft yet feels durable. Ordered the very dark brown - Dodd wood, I think and it was true to the picture color. Made a hat for my son-in-law who specifically requested that dark brown color which was very difficult to find in this weight. The hat looks good and is warm!

Comments about THE FIBRE CO. Cumbria:

This is soft but sturdy yarn which reminds me of traditional wool yarn. It's soft but not butter-soft an makes a great mitten, scarf, hat, cowl for cold weather.

Pros

  • sturdy but soft

Cons

    Best Uses

    • color work patterns, Fair Isle mittens, sweaters

    Comments about THE FIBRE CO. Cumbria:

    This is yarn with character; perfect for the colorwork mittens I'm designing — every stitch "pops"! And the colors have a rich, overdyed quality, not exactly heathered, but not solid either.
    I expect to get 2 pairs of mittens from two contrasting skeins — great yardage!
    Needless to say, I own enough of this stuff to keep me knitting all winter.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Yes ... yes .. yes.

      Comments about THE FIBRE CO. Cumbria:

      I used this yarn to make a cowl and promptly bought more for hats. The cowl is warm and the yarn held up to very aggressive blocking. This is an accessory I wear often!
