Our misty, silvery version of the original Hebridean + Zwartbles Heritage yarn. The natural white of the Exmoor Blueface enhances the silver tones found in the Hebridean to create a complex shade with lots of movement. Brume Aran is a soft and plump, worsted spun yarn, that produces a fabric with bounce. You will be pleased to know this new addition retains the original (and famous) signature scent of the fields, flock and new lambs in straw-filled barns.
Spun in Devon by John Arbon Textiles, the Grade 1, fine Hebridean fleece comes from a 2019 clip sourced in the North of England having an excellent staple length for yarn with lustre and a soft halo. The Zwartbles and Exmoor Blueface fibre it is blended with originate on Exmoor not far from the mill.
