John Arbon - Appledore DK- Spicy Pippin

Ein etwas rustikaleres Garn mit einem unglaublichen Farbspiel, hergestellt  aus 40% Devon Closewool / 40% Romney / 20% Exmoor Blueface, die sich super verstricken lässt. Die Wolle dafür stammt aus Westengland.

All the fibre in our new Appledore range is sourced from right here in the West Country, and, with a palette of unusual heathered shades, perfectly encapsulates our ethos. Like all our yarns, Appledore is steeped in our fibre heritage (all hail those vintage machines of ours). We have blended together Devon Closewool, a moorland breed with rustic and grippy fibre, with lustrous and characterful Romney and our old favourite, the gloriously bouncy Exmoor Blueface. The resulting blend is packed full of woolly bounce and a smattering of lustre, the perfect canvas for Appledore’s range of playful modern shades.

When creating Appledore’s palette we were drawn to the depth of tone found in traditional tweed textiles. Many of the shades in Appledore’s orchard of delights have been blended using four or five different base shades, creating a sublime richness to the colours. The shades are all named after different varieties (or cultivars, if you want to get all fancy) of apples that we have here in the West Country. Some of them are rather puntastic as we love a good chuckle round here…

These skeins are 100g and 250m
