Inspired by John's eclectic record collection, Yarnadelic works to a sport weight gauge or heavy fingering weight. John Arbon created 18 melange shades to illustrate the sentiment of each song.
Yarnadelic is 100% Falklands Corriedale. The breed is around 100 years old and was derived by crossing the Merino and Lincoln Longwool. Its properties are a perfect balance of delightful softness and bounce from the Merino combined with the slight lustre and long staple length of the Lincoln Longwool – a fibre lover's dream!
By giving this yarn a rounded 3-fold structure, John Arbon has enhanced the fibres natural stitch definition and drape, creating the ideal yarn for everything from cables to lace and garments to accessories.
They have farmed in the Falkland Islands – ensuring that the animals have been treated with the utmost care and are free from harmful mulesing. The fibre has then been dyed in the UK and lovingly prepared, blended and spun at John Arbon's North Devon Mill.
