Introducing Cumbria Fingering

After the release of The Fibre Co. Cumbria this fall, we knew the blend of merino, masham, and mohair would be amazing in a finer weight - perfect for mittens, color work, cables, lace, and garments that call for excellent stitch definition and longevity. 

The Fibre Co. Cumbria Fingering

With that in mind, we quickly set to work in developing Cumbria Fingering, a 4-ply, 328 yard / 100 gram skein in the same gorgeous palette we introduced in the worsted. 

As a 4-ply, each individual strand is quite fine, so the twist appears tighter and the yarn has a smooth finish and lustrous look, giving it excellent structure and stitch definition. The end result is reminiscent of a classic gansey yarn. but the quality of the merino, masham, and mohair fibers makes for a fabric with a wonderfully soft hand. 

We have some really exciting designs featuring Cumbria Fingering in the final stages of production, including a small collection of sweaters by Bristol Ivy, and will be sharing those with you sooon.

We're really excited to have the Cumbria Fingering in The Fibre Co. lineup. All colors are in stock and ready to ship and will be arriving shortly at a LYS near you
