John Arbon Textiles

Devonia 4Ply

Availability : In stock
A gorgeous blend of 3 UK breeds, creating a soft to the hand and shiny yarn in 4Ply and DK.

John Arbon's Devonia is a beautiful blend of 3 UK breeds - Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale - all from farms locally to John's mill in Devon. The Exmoor Blueface is their local sheep and brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn, whilst the Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of fibre.

Each shade is inspired by the work of renowned 19th century French tapestry artist Jean Lurcat. There are 14 in total and each is made up of up to 5 blended pre-dyed fibre tops to create a rich melange of colour in the spun yarn. It is lovingly worsted spun at the John Arbon Mill into both 4ply and DK weight yarns.
