County Cumbria in England is home to the photogenic Lake District, a land of photogenic mountains and lakes. Cumbria yarn reflects this rich landscape in its colors and hand. The Merino adds softness, the Masham allows for a beautiful heathered palette and the mohair creates strength and lustre. Fabrics knit from Cumbria are soft yet strong, making it a perfect yarn for everyday knitwear. Many of the shades in Cumbria use a base with natural brown Masham wool, which when overdyed, allows for beautifully deep saturated tones, with each colorway named after a location in the Lake District. Each mini-skein of Cumbria contains about 23 yards and will bring color to your projects knit with full sized skeins of Cumbria.
