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


"Just "test driven" my new socks, all I can say is "bloody fantastic socks!!".

It's like walking along with sheep sellotaped to your feet, very comfy, warm (I stood in the river for ten mins without getting cold, although my dogs got bored and wondered what I was doing!!)

Great communication, friendly and very honest as I received 50p refund on my postage!!, most companies would keep this and not say a word.

So thank you Sandra and all your team that work for you."


"Wonderful socks, exceptional customer service ... Buy with confidence from lovely people with the right values and exceptional quality products. Thank you and will be ordering again. Best Wishes to you."


"Mums bed socks are gorgeous and thank you so much for rushing them to her with a birthday wish especially for her 86th! Fantastic small business, can't wait to order more"


"So pleased to have it made it to Lynton today, very happy with my bag of lovely yarn."


"First class socks absolute pleasure to wear and brilliant customer service lets all support fantastic companies like this one."


"Such a lovely company and a great product!"


"I love the merino and silk I received and really love the price."


"Fantastic yarn. Beautiful to knit with. I will definitely be recommending it to other knitters."


John Arbon Textiles & Fibre Harvest - British makers of yarns and fibres

Welcome to John Arbon Textiles’ website, every page adorned with our luxury yarns & fibre tops, a fine array of woolly wonders.

We develop & make our yarns & tops at our specialist processing & spinning Mill, Fibre Harvest, a haven of enthusiasm & creativity, snug in the heart of North Devon.

The new Mill arrival, Italian cone winder (Gino) has settled in splendidly, whilst Gillian the skeiner (one of our oldest machines at over 100 years of age) has had are-vamp & is running smoother than ever.

Our latest yarn & tops range, Devonia, a beautiful blend of Devon fibres in 14 deep, mottled, irresistible shades, proudly features on the front cover of our latest catalogue.  And our KBN 4ply minis are welcomed into the fold - all 103 Knit By Numbers shades now available in baby 25g hanks, perfect for colour-work.

Throughout the last year Mill Membership numbers have increased monthly & we’re planning more special treats for the Mill Members’ secret web page in 2018.

The fabulous Mill team, led steadfastly by John, are Helena, Jack, Phil & Natasha; our Lynton shop & office, with Juliet at the helm, is run by Ginette, Judi & Natasha (again), whilst Frankie is our roving ambassador.

2018 sees our 4th Mill Open Weekend & Sale on 19th & 20th May, whilst we look forward to attending shows such as Unravel, Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Wonderwool, Woolfest, Fibre East & Yarndale.

Thanks to all our customers for your warm wholehearted support & encouragement.

All the best indeed

John & Juliet
