High Quality Socks, Textiles and Worsted Yarns Designed & Spun in Devon

Stars In The Sky


Stars in the sky is a textured, square shawl that is seamlessly knit in 3 sections. First a center square is knit on the bias in a simple textured stitch pattern. Second, stitches are picked up along the outer edge of the square and a star stitch border is knit around the center square. The border incorporates subtle striping to showcase the beautiful colour gradations in Alpaca Supreme. Last, a simple crochet picot edging is worked around the outside of the shawl to finish.

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.
