YARN TO ADORE Appledore is the brand-new addition to John Arbon Textiles’ yarn range. It’s a DK-weight which blends three types of West Country-sourced wool: the moorland Devon Closewool breed; lustrous Romney fibre; and bouncy Exmoor Blueface. Worsted-spun in Devon, Appledore has been designed with cosy, heirloom sweaters in mind, and has a rustic halo and a woolly feel. The palette of 20 heathered shades was inspired by traditional tweed textiles, and are named after different local varieties of apple. Appledore comes in 100g/250m skeins costing £17.50, or as 25g/62m mini skeins (£5.75 each, or six for £32).

MARTIN STOREY Hank MARTIN STOREY loves working with stitch textures, and for this men’s sweater he has combined a garter stitch panel across the top of the chest, with diamond cables and twists across the body and sleeves. The design has a comfortable, drop-shoulder shape, and is knitted in Rowan’s Softyak DK yarn. This knits up into a warm fabric that feels surprisingly lightweight, and is machine-washable on a cool cycle. There’s a choice of 19 shades in the range.
