John Arbon Textiles, Exmoor Sock: Whortleberries
John Arbon Textiles is a traditional British mill based on a very simple concept - a return to old-style textile manufacture by sustainably sourcing raw fibre locally, wherever possible, and converting it into high quality yarns. The mill is situated in the heart of North Devon, and the surrounding Exmoor landscape provides not only local sheep breeds for the yarn, but inspiration for color.
Exmoor sock yarn is made at the John Arbon mill from their most local fibre and has been designed to be hard wearing, versatile and full of character. It's a has a perfectly rustic feel and heathered look from the Zwartbles wool. This yarn is perfect for every day socks, and lightweight sweaters and accessories.
