When The Fibre Co. set out to design a sock yarn, we stayed true to our guiding principle of harnessing the beauty that nature provides in a way that is gentle on our planet. We 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 easy-wash treatment. The recycled nylon adds strength and durability. We named this agent Amble to reflect the kind of slow relaxed walking we enjoy here in the English Lake District.
