Devonia is a beautiful blend of 3 local breeds – Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale. The Exmoor Blueface is our local sheep and brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn, whilst the Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of fibre. It is lovingly worsted spun at our Mill into both 4ply and DK weight yarns.

Each Devonia shade is inspired by the work of renowned 19th century French tapestry artist Jean Lurçat. There are 14 in total and each is made up of up to 5 blended pre-dyed fibre tops to create a rich melange of colour in the spun yarn. The yarn in both 4ply and DK (100g skeins), is also available in the same shades as tops.
