The Fibre Co. set out to design a sock yarn that is gentle on our planet, yet soft and durable. TFC uses a recycled nylon and the wool fibers are treated with eco-friendly oxidants to remove the scales to prevent shrinkage when machine washed. Perfect for socks, sweaters or shawls. The yarn is named Amble to reflect the kind of slow relaxed walking enjoyed in the English Lake District where the creators of The Fibre Co. live.
Need a mini skein for stripes, colorwork or contrasting toes & heels? Amble comes in 25g mini skeins, too!
Machine wash gentle. Lay flat to dry.
FREE Yarn Winding
Many of our yarns are sold in hanks rather than balls and need to be wound into a "cake" before using. If you'd like us to do this for you, please add the Ball Winding Service to your order of yarn! (Please note: wound yarn can not be returned.)

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
