The Stanbury Walker sock is a true labour of love, the result of a four-year journey that emerged out of a wishful pub chat. John Arbon and Juliet Sensicle wondered whether they could produce socks from the wool of their local sheep variety, the Exmoor Blueface. Although the idea almost foundered before the first step had been taken. For they discovered that whilst they could buy British yarn, it wasn’t available from specific breeds. But hope was not extinguished, and the odyssey eventually saw local farmer, John Stanbury, supplying the wool for the eponymous sock – and the creation of a footwear classic.
