Carrying on with the success of the original worsted weight of Cumbria, we developed this sport weight version with the same nod to the mood, light and places that characterise the North West of the United Kingdom. The brown wool from English Masham is blended with a fine Mohair from Argentina that adds strength, lustre and warmth. These two fibres are blended with a fine South American Merino to give the final yarn the softness and beautiful hand that defines The Fibre Co. yarns. Fabrics knit from Cumbria Fingering are perfect for lighter weight garments and accessories alike. Yarn weight: Sport Hank weight: 100 g Fibre: 60% merino wool, 30% masham wool and 10% mohair Length: 300 m / 328 yds per 100 g hank Tension / Gauge: 26?30 sts / 10cm / 4 in Needle size: 2.5?3.25 mm / 1?3 US / 13?10 UK Care: Gently hand wash colours separately in cool water. We recommend alternating hanks as you work to give an overall blended appearance. Note: despite its name, Cumbria Fingering is indeed a sport weight yarn.
