Beautifully drapey and hard-wearing, Devonia is a worsted-spun, heavy fingering/ sportweight yarn, containing only West Country fibres local to John Arbon Mill where it is spun: the local Exmoor Blueface breed brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn and Wensleydale and Romney add golden sheen and fine drape.
Together, they create a wonderfully drapey, lustrous blend, with a good amount of woolly bounce and great durability- perfect for fluid garments, blankets and accessories, such as shawls and hats.
Dyed with plants collected around Glasgow and Scotland and sustainably-sourced raw plant material and dye extracts, these shades are light-fast but, like all natural dyes, may change and develop over time, a quality valued by many cultures.
