John Arbon Textiles include yarns created with British wool and is worsted spun in Devon, England. John Arbon’s Devon Mill uses vintage machinery and the yarn is made from breed specific sheep fiber.

John Arbon Textiles have blended together Devon Closewool, a moorland breed with rustic and grippy fibre, with lustrous and characterful Romney and our old favourite, the gloriously bouncy Exmoor Blueface. The resulting blend is packed full of woolly bounce and a smattering of lustre, the perfect canvas for Appledore’s range of playful modern shades.

When creating Appledore’s palette they were drawn to the depth of tone found in traditional tweed textiles. Many of the shades in Appledore’s orchard of delights have been blended using four or five different base shades, creating a sublime richness to the colours. 

Please remember that every effort is taken to represent the true colors of the yarn and that monitor settings will vary.
