We would like to welcome Kim Kearney (of Town End Yarns in the Lake District) into our sock fold. As of the 1st February 2018 we pass our sock mantle to Kim for her to nurture and expand.

Under the name of Arbon Socks, she will work closely with us to continue to supply all our regular styles.

John will carry on sourcing fibre and spinning the unique specialist sock yarns at our Mill in Devon.

Whilst together, John and Kim will improve on existing and develop new sock styles, producing an exciting and comprehensive luxury Arbon Socks range.

We know Kim will take on and move forward with our British-made luxury sock range, adding her years of yarn and animal breeding experience into the mix.

And, with Kim at the sock helm, we will be able to ensconce ourselves at our specialist small scale worsted mill (one of only a handful still operating in the UK).  Here, deep in the heart of North Devon, we design, develop and make all our glorious yarns and splendid fibre tops.

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
