Our yarns

Here’s a reminder of some of  the summer 2015 yarns. This might seem a little inappropriate, but some people – those who like to take their time – will knit a winter sweater during the summer so that it’s ready when the weather changes, and vice versa.

This is a taster for you; just click on a picture for a slideshow. If you have got any questions about a particular yarn just give us a call.

We think they are yummy, come and have a scrodgle!

Of course we still have a wide variety of other yarns from a number of major yarn companies including Rowan,

Rowan Kid Classic(here’s some of their Kid Classic), Designer Yarns – Debbie Bliss, Louisa Harding,

Louisa HardingMirasol, Araucania and Noro – this is Kureyon, which is great for felting as well as for knitting or crochet:

Noro KureyonWe also stock a lot of Sirdar, Patons, Sublime,

Sublime Luxury Aran Tweed(that’s their Luxury Aran Tweed), Wendy, Katia, Peter Pan, Twilleys, James Brett  (and time for a shot of their well-loved Marble Chunky):

James Brett Marble Chunkyand the rest.

Incidentally, we have a great range of yarns for babies and children at very reasonable prices – in fact, there are some good economic yarns for adults as well, in all weights. Here’s some of Hayfield’s Chunky with wool, which knits up beautifully:

Hayfield Chunky with WoolWe are often asked about British wool and local yarns, and do our best to satisfy this demand. Among others, we stock some of Rowan’s British Sheep Breeds yarn, as well as some of Debbie Bliss’s Bluefaced range, and some from Woolyknits and Jarol.

We also have some which are even more local – handspun from local sheep, for instance, or from local producers, or those from the fabulous Welsh dyer, Colinette.
