Earth is a worsted-spun, fingering yarn, made from West Country fibres local to John Arbon Mill where it is spun. Made in a series of natural shades from differing proportions of local Exmoor Blueface and Zwartbles, this is a yarn that is full of character, lustre, durability and, unusually, both bounce and drape.

It is perfect for 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.
