Amble is a fingering-weight yarn made from a blend of eco-friendly washable wool and alpaca for comfort, as well as recycled nylon for strength. Although designed especially for sock knitting, this is a soft and durable yarn also great for easy-to-care-for sweaters and accessories.
The Fiber Co. named this yarn Amble to reflect the kind of slow relaxed walking enjoyed in the English Lake District. The 'Easy-Wash' trademarked name refers to a process used to make the wool and alpaca fibers in Amble, machine washable without shrinking. Please refer to The Fibre Co. website to learn more about this eco-friendly technique.
