The natural beauty of Devon fibres

Date: 29th May 2024 | Category:


Crafters can choose from 4-ply, DK, mini skeins, 100g skeins and fibre tops, all in heavenly natural, undyed gradients. 

Alongside the existing blend of Exmoor Blueface and Zwartbles (previously called Exmoor Zwartbles), John Arbon has added a Grey Exmoor Blueface and Romney option as well. Each of these breeds is available to buy separately, or as a blended gradient of each combination so you can get the best of both.

Each blend leans into a different characteristic of the wools, enabling you to choose the right fibre blend for your project. While the Zwartbles/Exmoor Blueface is super-bouncy and robust, the Grey Exmoor Blueface/Romney is softer and more lustrous.

For those looking to add colour to their projects, John Arbon has teamed up with the hand-dying duo at RiverKnits to create a limited-edition batch of shades in two glorious gradients, Blossom and Leaves, which also harmonise beautifully with the undyed shades of Devon Naturals. Leaves offers a fresh minty hue graduating to deeper forest green, while Blossom travels from pale peachy pink to a more robust tomato red. All shades come in 100g skeins, so pick your favourite for one garment or accessory, or get the full gradient of one or both.
