Devonia is a beautiful blend of 3 local-to-Devon breeds: Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale. The Exmoor Blueface is their local sheep and brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and luster to the yarn, whilst the Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of fiber.
Each shade is inspired by the work of renowned 19th century French tapestry artist Jean Lurcat. We have 20 shades and each is made up of up to 5 blended pre-dyed fibre tops to create a rich melange of color in the spun yarn. It is lovingly worsted spun at John Arbon's Mill into the 4ply weight carried by The Woolly Thistle.
