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. Made in the UK

Pros

  • Beautiful color

Cons

  • Harsh feeling
  • Splits

Best Uses

    Comments about true Cumbria:

    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!

    • Slightly itchy

    Best Uses

    • Cowl
    • Hat

    Comments about true 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!

    Feeling ambivalent...

    By 

    from Boise, ID

    Pros

    • Great Color Saturation

    Cons

    • Fuzzy
    • Not Soft For Next To Skin
    • Splitty

    Best Uses

      Comments about true Cumbria:

      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.

      Beautiful New Yarn

      By 

      from San Antonio, TX

      Pros

      • Easily Joined
      • Good stitch definition
      • Gorgeous colors
      • Soft

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about true Cumbria:

          I purchased this from my LYS, not WEBS, to knit Agrotera Pullover in the Fall 2015 Interweave Knits. The combination of two different wools and mohair IS, indeed, a lustrous result (per the yarn band). The weight may be slightly more light worsted than worsted, but not to worry. The yarn is easily and invisibly joined using the "spit-split" method. No knots were found in the first ball of five.
