John Arbon is one of the few small scale worsted spinning mills left in the UK. A super sweet family run business, where the wool the source is always as close to there door step as possible.
This is what they have to say about their fingering weight Exmoor Sock, “Exmoor enhances the durable character and bounce of the fibre from our local Exmoor Blueface sheep – a cross breed of the Exmoor Horn (full bodied and hard-wearing) and the Bluefaced Leicester (renowned for its softness and lustre).”
The yardage is 200 meters/50g, which is about 218 yards. So you will need 2 skeins for socks. However, this yarn is not only for socks! It would be perfect for a long lasting sweaters, anything colorwork, or some cozy mittens!
