John Arbon Textiles
Devonia 4 ply
Devonia is a beautiful blend of 3 local breeds - Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale. The Exmoor Blueface is a 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 John Arbon's mill in South Moulton.
Composition: 50% Exmoor Blueface / 30% Devon Bluefaced Leicester / 20% Devon Wensleydale
