Harvest Hues tops from John Arbon are a blend of local Devon Zwartbles and organic Falkland Merino. The Zwartbles sheep is naturally dark brown and when blended with the pre-dyed merino, transforms into deep, mottled tones reminiscent of Exmoor. When making these combs, John Arbon combs the fibres in one direction, emphasising the softness, sheen and strength of a blend. The elegant Merino and the springy Zwartbles complement each other perfectly, giving the tops and yarn a delicate woolly sheen and full texture.
