Hester in Cumbria color Grizedale Forest.
Bristol Ivy designed 6 sweaters with The Fibre Company’s Cumbria and Cumbria Fingering yarns. Both yarns are a wonderful blend of South American merino wool, British brown masham wool from rare breed sheep, and mohair. Hearty, yet soft, and with a palette of glowing shades, Bristol did a fantastic job of showing off Cumbria’s crisp stitch definition and gorgeous colors.
Cumbria is a worsted weight yarn. You’ll get 4.5 to 5 stitches per inch on a size US 6-8 needle. It’s used for Hester, shown above, and for the two following designs.
Hylda in Cumbria color Windermere.
Myrtle in Cumbria color Appleby Castle.
Cumbria Fingering is available in the same colors as Cumbria. It’s knits up at 6.5 to 7.5 stitches per inch on a size US 1-3 needle.
Lita in Cumbria Fingering color Buttermere.
Prue in Cumbria Fingering color Helvellyn.
