Welcome to John Arbon Textiles
Thanks for indulging in our world of woolly wonders. It all starts life at our specialist small scale worsted Mill, Fibre Harvest - a hub of enthusiasm & creativity, nestled in North Devon, where we develop our ne quality yarns & tops & design our luxury socks.
Still expanding, the Mill awaits another new arrival – a cone winder, called Gino (he is Italian) to join our vintage machinery collection. Whilst our Mill Membership numbers grow so fast that we’re planning a special Members’ event in 2017.
We have a new yarn in production – Devonia, a beautiful blend of Devon fibres. The catalogue cover proudly features our splendid Stanbury Walker socks in celebration of their story being shown on BBC TV’s Country le in January 2016.
Our truly fab Mill team, lead by John, are Sara, Becky & Daisy. Whilst our newly refurbished Lynton shop & office are looked after by Juliet, & her trusty crew of Judi, Ginette & Sandra, with Frankie as our London correspondent.
2017 will see our 3rd Mill Open Weekend & Sale on 10th & 11th June (a little later in the year than usual), whilst we look forward to attending shows such as Unravel, Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Wonderwool, Woolfest, Fibre East & Yarndale. So thank you to all our customers for all your warm support & encouragement.
All the best, and here’s to another year of wool-fantasticness...

John Arbon Textiles & Fibre Harvest - British makers of unisex socks, yarns and fibres
As John Arbon Textiles we are a small family-run business, nestled in North Devon producing a wide range of luxury socks in the UK. Sister company, Fibre Harvest, uses traditional worsted machinery to process & spin fine quality British yarns ... one of only a handful of small scale Worsted Mills still operating in the UK.
Our 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 our luxury British made unisex socks.
