When The Fibre Co. set out to design a sock yarn, they stayed true to their guiding principle of harnessing the beauty that nature provides in a way that is gentle on our planet. They waited until a recycled nylon and an alternative to the standard chlorine processed washable wools became available. The end result is a soft yet durable yarn from Merino wool and alpaca fibres processed with an eco-friendly, anti-shrinkage, and easy-wash treatment. The recycled nylon adds strength and durability.
The Fibre Co. named this yarn Amble to reflect the kind of slow relaxed walking locals enjoy in the English Lake District. The shades are borrowed from the successful palette in The Fibre Co.'s Cumbria yarn with the cream and all heathers using a natural ecru Suri alpaca whilst the others use a natural brown Suri alpaca.
