Devonia is one of the John Arbon team's all time favourite bases. It is the first blend they created which was made exclusively using their local West Country fibre, something they are now doing more and more of as they love it! For Devonia they chose a beautiful blend of Exmoor Blueface, Bluefaced Leicester and lustre breeds. The Exmoor Blueface is a local sheep and brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn, whilst the lustre breeds (a combo of Wensleydale and Romney) add their qualities of beautiful golden sheen and fine drape.
Together they create a wonderfully drapey lustrous blend, with just a dash of woolly bounce. It's a go-to yarn for any time you want a little swing, like shawls and drapey cardis.
