50g Skiens 200 metres
The Exmoor Sock yarn from John Arbon enhances the durable character and bounce of the fibre from 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). They have added naturally dark browny-black Devon Zwartbles giving extra bounce and a subtle fleck of colour, plus Falklands Corriedale to enhance softness and stitch definition and a hint of Nylon for durability.
The new Exmoor Sock yarn not only celebrates Exmoor, but is designed to be perfect for socks, whilst still having the versatility to suit garments and accessories that relish a hard wearing, machine washable yarn. If you fancy stripes or colourwork, our Exmoor Sock is available in handy 50g skeins.

When creating the shades John Arbon were inspired by the changing seasons of the Exmoor landscape. So, when selecting the names for the 13 shades, it seemed only fitting to turn to the traditional local dialect of days gone by.
