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

Annual No. 1 - Pre-order Deposit


The Annual is coming… Pre-order your copy 

As a regular customer, you may have missed receiving your John Arbon Textiles catalogue this autumn.  We know many of you look forward to receiving your copies in the post and browsing through its pages with an afternoon cuppa!  Somehow print just feels a little more luxurious and relaxing than gazing upon a computer screen.

Never fear!  As our catalogue is now in its thirteenth year, we have decided to mark the occasion with something very special.  We have revamped and expanded our regular catalogue into The Annual.  

The Annual will be bigger and better - brimming with insights into our love of vintage machinery, luxury Yarn ranges and special fibre Top blends, plus glimpses of behind the scenes life at the Mill.  It will also include exclusive knitting and crochet patterns designed by some of our most favourite and regular designers.  And, as this is a nod to the annuals of our childhood, we couldn't resist sneaking in a few activity pages, useful tips and tricks, the odd secret from John Arbon, and maybe even a sighting of Mr. Smoke (John and Juliet’s much loved old cat).  In addition to all this splendid new content, you will still be able to use the Annual as a catalogue when browsing for woolly treats, be they Yarn or Tops.

We hope you are as excited about the Annual as we are!  We are only planning on printing a limited run of issue 1.  So if you would like to ensure you get your hands on one please reserve your copy here.  You can simply do so by purchasing the £1.00 deposit (see below).  We will confirm reciept once you have placed your deposit. Then, just before the Annual launches at large (Spring 2019), we will contact you via email with all the details and send a link for you to purchase your pre-ordered copy. This email will contain a voucher code with a discount for the £1.00 pre-paid deposit. And, it goes without saying, if you change your mind, just pop us an email and we will refund you accordingly.

The Annual (issue 1) will launch Spring 2019

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
