John Arbon Textiles | Harvest Hues


Harvest Hues yarn is a blend of Devon farmed Zwartbles with organically Farmed Falklands Merino. The Zwartbles sheep is naturally dark brown and when blended with their pre-dyed Merino colours transforms into deep, mottled shades reminiscent of Exmoor. These fibres together create a bouncy and shiny yarn.
