John Arbon Textiles – Yarnadelic

As you may know, John is not only a spinner of yarn, but also records. This started the team thinking that it would be wonderful to create a yarn range inspired by his eclectic record collection – everything from punk to funk.

We had a cracking evening when John played us Mill folk a few of his favourites and, whilst sipping a few glasses of chilled wine, we all wrote down the colour each song evoked. Then the hand carders came out and we began creating shades to illustrate the sentiment of each song – and thus the palette for Yarnadelic was born.

We hope you’ll find the 18 melange shades inspiring.

We’ve been listening to some of the tracks John selected on repeat since he first played them to us. Each of the shades in this range is named after a specific track. Click here to visit our Yarnadelic Spotify playlist with some of the songs that inspired us and Click here to get your hands on John’s Soundcloud mix. So sit back and click those needles, wave those hooks and tap that treadle to the beat!

John Arbon Textiles – Yarnadelic is a beautiful fibre from the John Arbon Textiles family mill.

John Arbon and his wife Juliet started the John Arbon Textiles Mill nineteen years ago.
John Arbon Textiles is based on a very simple concept: a return to old-style textile manufacture by sustainably sourcing raw fibre locally, wherever possible, and converting it in the UK into high-quality tops and yarns, rather than racking up air miles by chasing the cheapest available labour.

Their mill is one of only a handful of small-scale worsted spinning mills still operating in the UK. John likes to use fibre from sheep on their doorstep whenever possible and, with the help of his trusty team, transforms it into unique and sumptuous blends in the form of yarn and tops.

Rather than being focused on the outcome alone, JAT pours love into every part of the process. With great love and respect for the machines involved, the breeds of sheep and kinds of wool, John and Juliet will only work with fibre that excites them.

And that excites us. John Arbon yarns are wonderful yarns to work with. It’s one of those yarns that you knit or crochet with and you know your work will last for decades.

Have a look at John Arbon Textile’s wonderful video “A short day in the mill” or read more about their process and machinery here.

Besides the John Arbon Textiles – Yarnadelic yarn, we carry more John Arbon yarns which you can find here.
