John Arbon Textiles:
Harvest Hues Yarn is a blend of local Devon farmed Zwartbles and lustrous Bluefaced Leicester mixed with soft as a cloud Falklands Merino.
The Zwartbles sheep is naturally dark brown and has a dear place in our hearts, as when blended with our pre-dyed Bluefaced Leicester and Merino colours, it transforms the fibre into deep, mottled shades reminiscent of our home in Exmoor. When preparing these tops we comb the fibres in one direction, accentuating a blend’s softness, shine and strength. The elegant Merino, bouncy Zwartbles and glowing BFL complement each other perfectly, giving the tops and yarn a delicate woolly halo, impeccable drape and full-bodied texture. Wonderful!
The Worsted Weight yarn compliments our existing yarn ranges perfectly and gives those crafters who prefer a chunkier yarn and bigger needles or hooks an exciting option.
