Amble is a fingering weight blend of merino wool, alpaca & nylon. This yarn is soft and durable, processed with an eco-friendly anti-shrinking easy wash treatment. It's also made with recycled nylon to add strength and durability. The Fibre Company named it Amble to reflect the kind of slow and relaxed walking the enjoy in the English Lake District of the United Kingdom. Alternating skeins as you work will give an overall blended appearance when using for garments.
