Excelana is the result of an exciting collaboration between John Arbon of Fibre Harvest and Susan Crawford knitwear designer and author, bringing you a luxurious knitting yarn evoking vintage wools from the 'Golden Age of Knitting'.

Excelana yarn is 100% British wool, spun from the fleece of the Exmoor Blueface, which live on the moors of North Devon. A cross between the Exmoor Horn and the Bluefaced Leicester, the fleece of the Exmoor Blueface creates a lustrous yarn with a soft handle, great stretch and excellent stitch definition, affording the knitter a pleasurable knitting experience.

Excelana is processed and spun in Devon by Fibre Harvest, at Coldharbour Mill, one of only a handful of worsted fibre processing and spinning plants still operating in the UK.
