The Origin
why we chose Amble

Durable, Soft and eco-friendly.

Durable, Soft and eco-friendly

Although designed especially for sock knitting, Amble is a soft and durable yarn also great for easy-to-care-for sweaters and accessories.

The Beginning

When The Fibre Co. founder Daphne began to develop the yarn that would become Amble, her goal was to provide a yarn that would delight sock knitters while staying true to The Fibre Co. ethos of sustainability. This goal lead her down a path of research and development that happily ended in the creation of a new yarn, the first of its kind.

The Mill

The end result is a soft yet durable yarn from Merino wool and alpaca fibres processed with an eco-friendly anti-shrinkage Easy-wash treatment. The recycled nylon adds strength and durability. We named this yarn Amble to reflect the kind of slow relaxed walking we enjoy here in the English Lake District.

The Palette

A range of gorgeous hues and shades are available in Amble, particularly because the yarn is spun with 2 base shades—a creamy ecru and a warm grey created by using natural brown alpaca in the mix. These 2 shades are beautiful on their own, and add a stunning range to the palette, with brights and heathered shades in abundance.

The Beginning

Like so many of The Fibre Co. yarns, Luma had an ancestor in the very first yarns Daphne created. At the mini-mill in Maine, in the early days of The Fibre Co., Daphne experimented with carding different fibres together just to see what would happen.

The Mill

Some years and many tries later, Daphne found a mill that could spin a similar blend of fibres to Savannah with some differences; soy was replaced with natural silk, and the brown cotton was replaced with Peruvian organic Pima cotton.

The Palette

Each fibre in Luma takes dye a different way, and this results in subtle tones playing in each hank. A wide range of shades has been achieved, from deeply saturated to subtlety muted shades.

A Review From The Knitter

The Fibre Co.’s first sock yarn is a real treat! It feels wonderfully soft, and is a lovely choice not only for socks, but also for shawl projects and lightweight sweaters.” – The Knitter, Issue 189

A stockist story from Spun

"I'm a sucker for color, and when my eyes landed on Arranmore Light, I couldn't turn away!"

Spun staff member Kate just finished knitting her Mariechen (designed by Isabell Kraemer) out of Arranmore Light. After an initial color quandary, she thoroughly enjoyed the project: 

“My difficulty was picking which color to use: The subtle flecks in Riveresque that create a light blue with depth? The rich saturation in Meera that made me want to dive in? Finally I settled on the vivid melange of orange and pink that Orla provided, and the color kept me happy the whole time I was knitting my cardigan.”
And Spun’s Amanda just launched into her Cadadh (designed by Kate Davies), opting for the beautiful neutral Tallach so that her piece would have broad appeal:
“I am loving it! Arranmore Light is the perfect balance of rustic and luxury.”
“I love that the cashmere and silk add a softness to the yarn without distracting from the wooly core. It’s sturdy without being stiff, and it’s gentle on my hands, thanks to the stretch in the wool. I look forward to wrapping myself in this cozy shawl on a chilly day.”
