John Arbon Devonia DK
JOHN ARBON DEVONIA DK
Devonia DK is a beautiful blend of three British breeds - Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale all of which are local to John Arbor in Devon. Each of the breeds brings something unique to the yarn; the Exmoor Blueface 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 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 lovingly worsted spun in John Arbon's mill in Devon.
