Glaramara Yarn Set in Marie Wallin's British Breeds from WESTMORLAND
Glaramara is a stunning Fairisle sweater design from Westmorland which is knitted in the round. The design is a mixture of small repeating motifs inspired by traditional Fairisle and ornamental design. An allover colorwork on a dark base, it has a fitted, longer line silhouette and the sleeves are the same length for all the sizes but can be made longer or shorter by adding or reducing the number of stripes in the cuffs.

If you are worried you can purchase an extra skein of the main color! Please remember that every effort is taken to represent the true colors of the yarn and that monitor settings will vary.

From the Westmorland book: "Glaramara is named after the fell that stretches from Stonethwaite to Borrowdale in the Lake District. Like many fells in Cumbria, the pleasant sounding name comes from a series of old Norse words, meaning ‘Hill with the mountain hut by a chasm’!"
