Year-round fashion and cosiness. Suitable for vegans! Pascuali Cumbria is composed of fibres with diverse properties that provide you with a cooling effect in the summer and warm you up in colder seasons. Its consistency, lightness and shape retention make it suitable for tops and other accessories such as scarves or shawls, as well as for baby and children’s clothing. We named this yarn after Donald Watson’s former place of residence. Watson founded the “Vegan Society” in 1944 and was the first to coin the word “vegan”.
60% Cotton (pima)
40% Viscose (bamboo cellulose)
Cumbria is a delicate, silky and shiny blend of high-quality pima cotton and bamboo viscose . This wonderful blend of fibres makes Cumbria a very soft yarn that feels good on the skin and is reminiscent of a merino-silk mix. Cumbria is very pleasant to work with and is equally suitable for knitting and crochet projects.
