Devonia 4 ply by John Arbon
100% Devon Wool
Devonia is a beautiful blend of 3 local breeds – Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale. The Exmoor Blueface is John Arbon's 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. It is lovingly worsted spun at their Mill in Devon.
Each Devonia shade is inspired by the work of renowned 19th century French tapestry artist Jean Lurçat. There are 20 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.
