‘Cumbria’ is an alpaca and wool sock yarn.  It is our own blend of 47% British alpaca, 43% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 10% nylon.

Cumbria Alpaca Sock yarn is available in its natural oatmeal and eight over-dyed shades which give depth to the yarn.

This yarn knits to Sock, Fingering weight or light 4 ply knitting patterns, (but always knit a tension swatch).  There are approximately 400m per 100g.  The yarn is sold in 100g hanks.  If you would like us to ball your yarn for you, please make a note on the order.

Wash gently by hand or in the wool cycle of your machine with a small amount of non-bio detergent.  Do not tumble dry.  The yarn has been washed, but some surface residue dye may come out in the first wash, particularly with the deeper colours.

Alpaca with Blue Faced Leicester Wool Sock Yarn

Cumbria Alpaca Sock Yarn in Mustard

‘Cumbria’ is an Alpaca and wool sock yarn.  It is our own blend of 47% British alpaca, 43% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 10% nylon.

This really is a local yarn.  We collected the Blue Faced Leicester fleeces from farms in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales and carefully prepared them here at Town End.  We combined this with white and coloured British alpaca fleeces which we painstakingly cleaned of hay and other bits.  The fibres have been scoured, carded, combed, dyed and spun in Yorkshire.  Most of the yarn is being knitted into socks by Arbon Socks, but we have plied some for hand-knitters.

Cumbria Alpaca Sock yarn is available in its natural oatmeal and eight over-dyed shades which give depth to the yarn.
