Spinach / Cabbage / Squashed Frog… SYCAMORE

After much deliberation of what to call our new Merino/Zwartbles browny/green top, made exclusively for the secret Mill Members page…

We are now back from Woolfest and unpacking. What a great show. We always enjoy Woolfest and we stay on a lovely little smallholding where there are shetland ponies, horses and a dog named Belle!

We launched a brand new Knit by Numbers colour at Woolfest – a bright raspberry pink base, down to the lighter gradients.
It is now available on our website as well.

And if you have a shadecard without these colours, no.62, 63, 64, 65, 66 and 67, and would like a strand to make your shadecard complete please e-mail Juliet and let her know and she will send the shades out free of charge (juliet@jarbon.com)

Here are a few images of our stand at Woolfest if you didn’t make it. It was great to see lots of returning folk and meet some new people there too.

…She was one among many who come to show us what they have been making with our fibre/yarn.
We do love seeing the creative things you have come up with, so always bring them along and show us!

A Special thank you also to the splendid lady who brought us 2 days’ worth of delicious cake! So many different types of cake and so little time! Sorry to the customers who caught us red handed with mouthfuls of yummy cake!

Towards the end of the show the organises came round and awarded us with a rosette of loveliness! We were chuffed, so thank you!

We are next at Fibre East, so we hope to see you there!

The launch of our Mill Membership is complete and the first Membership packs have been sent out in the post.

So we hope all you Mill Members have received your packages, with your special John Arbon Textiles needle gauge Membership card that has your Mill Membership number on the back … hope it made you smile!

And we had our first Mill Members come and visit the brand new show room AND have a mill tour! A couple of those visiting had even won their free membership in the raffle at the Open Weekend. A group of splendid ladies and one lovely man, who were on a camping holiday and they had all brought their spinning wheels along for a grand spin-along around the campfire. (HOW GREAT IS THAT!?)
