Cumbria is an amalgamation of the former Bamboo Bio and Bio Cotton series and now complements our range with a high-quality, vegan yarn. We named it after the former home of Donald Watson, founder of the Vegan Movement.
This all-rounder combines the advantages of pima cotton and bamboo viscose in a super soft yarn with an absolutely adorable feeling on your skin – its pleasurable touch is reminiscent of a merino-silk yarn.
You will be fascinated when starting to handle Cumbria as the yarn is very pleasant and easy to knit with.
Suitable for all seasons and all weather, this yarn can be used for any knitting project. The fiber properties provide a cooling effect in summer and the fluffy surface ensures warming qualities in winter. The range of colors is compatible with all seasons and offers strong and vibrant as well as subtle and restrained colors.
In addition, the yarn is impressively lightweight and stable, despite the use of bamboo viscose. You will not have to worry about your finished knitting piece wearing out.
It’s not just vegans and allergy sufferers who will be stoked by Cumbria. The yarn has an application for every knitter, such as home accessories, baby clothes, women's and men's sweaters or scarves.
