Devonia Brew – Yarn Special
The Devonia Brew shades were masterminded by the delightfully mad Perkins family, father and daughter, Phil and Daisy. Phil works in downstairs production at the Mill, both gilling up fibre tops and also helping us wrangle our fibre stocks and looking after deliveries. Daisy heads up our finishing production, keeping folks on track with their coning and plying and skeining. She also has a reputation as the fastest yarn twiddler in the West Country – by our estimation at least! They chose our Devonia base for their special shades.
Beetle’s Wing – This rather magical shade of grey-green-pink looks just like the iridescent sheen of a beetle’s wing. Look at it in different lights and you’ll notice a slight variation in tone of colour each time.
Willowherb – This light, but warm pink is a perfect mid-toned neutral to brighten up any project. It is much paler and more desaturated than our main range offering, Broken Flower.
Wild Damson – This deep plum blends pinks, magenta and deeper purples to form a beautifully balanced bouquet of pinky purple shades.

Introducing our Brewed by the Mill Folk specials! These stonkers were hand-selected and blended (and spun of course) by our talented team at the Mill. Everyone had a go at making a shade this time, and cor blimey have they whipped up some doozies! We’ve got three shades available across each weight in Appledore, Devonia, Harvest Hues and Yarnadelic so whatever your fave base, we’ve got you covered.
These stonking shades were made to celebrate our Mill Open Weekend. Now you know we like to make a bit of a celebration out of these things, so we created a whopping 12 (!) limited edition tops & yarn specials available on both our website and with a selection of our stockists whilst supplies last.
Thank you kindly for joining in with our virtual bash and for making it possible for us to wake up every morning and do what we love!
