Color: Hoary Morning


This yarn is a loosely spun DK, with a distinctive rustic halo (the handle is a little reminiscent of a Shetland yarn). The resulting fabric has a wonderfully warm woolly halo and a full-bodied texture. Because of this halo and its two-ply nature, the resulting Yarn can be worked at both a tight and looser gauge, as the halo of fibres will simply expand to fill in any gaps around the stitches. With Appledore we have created a durable workhorse yarn that is pill-resistant and ideally suited for everyday wear – be that in garments or accessories.

Although all worsted spun yarns have a lot of drape, this blend has slightly less than the majority of other John Arbon yarns, giving it a cozy heirloom feel. 

Appledore is a lively blend with an unpretentious air. It’s the ideal fibre to wear whilst rambling out and about scrumping apples. With twenty unusual heathered shades to choose from, you’re sure to find a colour combination that makes your heart glad.
