Cumbria is a delicate, silky and shiny blend of high-quality pima cotton  and bamboo viscose . This wonderful blend of fibres makes Cumbria a very soft yarn that feels good on the skin and is reminiscent of a merino-silk mix. Cumbria is very pleasant to work with and is equally suitable for knitting and crochet projects. 

Due to the properties of the fibres combined in this yarn, Cumbria has a cooling effect in the summer and its light fleece can warm you up in the colder seasons. Because this vegan yarn is great all-year-round yarn, we have coordinated the colour palette accordingly from delicate and reserved tones to strong and cheerful ones. 

Cumbria stands out because of its lightness and its shape retention - a finished piece made of this beautiful yarn will certainly not wear out easily!

Cumbria is just as suitable for tops as for accessories such as scarves or shawls. It is pleasantly soft and can also be worn directly on the skin - making it wonderfully suitable for baby and children's clothing.

It is worth mentioning, that we named this yarn after Donald Watson´s former place of residence. Watson founded the "Vegan Society" in 1944 and was the first to coin the word "vegan".

Every effort is made to present the yarn colours accurately, however, as yarn is dyed in lots and as computer monitors render colour differently, variations may occur.

Tension and Ply
The Ply information provided on this website is a guide only.
We recommend, the most accurate way to begin when hand knitting is to follow the instructions for each yarn/pattern and knit a tension square.
