Naturally durable, the loft of the fibre from John Arbon’s local Exmoor Blueface sheep – a cross breed of the Exmoor Horn (full bodied and hard-wearing) and the Bluefaced Leicester (renowned for its softness and lustre), makes it an ideal choice for socks. By adding the naturally dark browny-black Devon Zwartbles John has added some additional bounce and a subtle fleck of colour. The Falklands Corriedale brings some softness and stitch definition tot he mix, with a minimum of Nylon included for extra durability.
A celebration of the sheep and landscape of Exmoor, perfect for socks, with the versatility for garments and accessories that will be hard wearing and machine washable yarn. The handy 50g skeins size means it’s also ideal for colourwork.
