John Arbon Appledore Fiber – 100g Combed Top – Winter Stubbard
Appledore, another remarquable base by John Arbon. It is a blend of rustic, durable, slightly lustrous, beautifully colored fibers with a natural halo. All the fibers that make up this wool come from the nearby area of the mill. You get the durability of Devon Closewool, the personality and softness of Romney and the bounce of Exmoor Blueface. The color mixes are exquisite, complex and full of personality. And it seems (thanks Paule) that it is butter to spin.
