Yarn O'Clock

There's always time for yarn…

John Arbon Textiles & Fibre Harvest snug in the heart of North Devon is one of only a handful of specialist small scale Worsted Mills, still operating in the UK.  It is a creative den of fine quality yarn and top making and luxury sock design.

Their production concept is simple – a return to the old style of textile manufacture … sourcing raw fibre (locally wherever possible) & converting it in Britain into high quality hand knit yarns & the very sock yarn used to knit their luxury British made unisex socks.

Alpaca 2-3ply Lace – a soft, lightweight and durable yarn, spun to a heavy lace weight. The natural drape and halo of alpaca lends itself to intricate lace projects.

Each colour range is available in 6 shades – going from dark to light, and each colour is given a unique number reference, rather than a name, hence the range being called Knit By Numbers.  We stock 15 of these glorious shades.
