John Arbon Textiles and Fibre Harvest are sister companies based in North Devon. Fibre Harvest uses traditional worsted machinery to process and spin fine quality British yarns for hand knitting. The same sock yarns are used to knit their range of high quality socks. This week, John shares his inspirations.
