John Arbon Devonia DK is a beautiful blend of three British breeds - 50% Exmoor Blueface, 30% Devon Bluefaced Leicester and 20% Devon Wensleydale.
Each of the breeds brings something unique to the yarn. The Exmoor Blueface brings its delightful springy nature. Bluefaced Leicester gives outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn. The Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of the fibre.
We stock all 14 shades which are inspired by the work of renowned 19th century French tapestry artist Jean Lurcat. 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 worsted spun in John Arbon's mill in Devon.
