Devonia is spun in Devon by John Arbon Textiles, from wool sourced locally to the mill. It’s a worsted, plied DK weight yarn with a fabulous sheepy texture. The Exmoor Blueface and Bluefaced Leicester wools provide super softness and warmth, while the Wensleydale wool lends lustre and a subtle shine to the blend. It’s a crafter’s dream! We recommend it for a wide range of stitch patterns and projects. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.
Please note that although all our photographs have been taken in daylight conditions with a digital SLR camera, computer monitors and other colour screen displays vary widely, so the colours may appear differently in real life to how they do on screen.
Caring for your yarn:
When it comes to blocking or washing your project, use lukewarm water with your favourite wool wash, and lay flat to dry. This yarn has been commercially mill-dyed, but differing water temperatures and chemicals can cause some dye to bleed. If you’re using it in a multicoloured project, we recommend washing a swatch first to test for colour-fastness.
