Sirdar Happy Cotton

Feeding our creative crochet habit, Sirdar’s tiny bundles of joy make the perfect addition to any yarn stash. Happy Cotton comes in adorable and handy 25g balls, giving you just the right amount of yarn for those miniature makes you’ve got planned, and ensuring you don’t finish with more leftover yarn than you know what to do with! Soft, smooth, and in an incredible selection of varied shades, Happy Cotton is just the thing for some fun Amigurumi – why not see what you can bring to life?

Scheepjes Skies Heavy & Light

New from Scheepjes, Skies Heavy (Aran) and Skies Light (4 Ply) are 100% Premium Blend cotton yarns, which truly are as soft as a cloud!

All dyed with beautiful shades of Indigo dye (including the green shades), these natural fibre yarns have a subtle variation in colour and a hand dyed look. The rich shades of Skies Heavy and Skies Light echo skies of all natures – from the pale blue of a sunny day, to the green angry sky of a storm.

Regia Pairfect Kids Color 4ply

The same pairfect pattern technique, but now for tiny feet! Regia Pairfect Kids Color 4 Ply is a warm and strong wool and polyamide blend in a selection of magic colour mixes that your little ones are sure to love. Each yellow strand within the ball denotes the beginning of the next sock meaning you can match up your pattern repeats perfectly making for identical pairs of socks. Kids Color makes these pattern repeats shorter so you can have great variation and shape even on smaller socks - the pairfect sock yarn!

New Wave Yarn

Wool and the Gang’s New Wave Yarn aims to save our seas one plastic bottle at a time - or should that be three? With three whole plastic bottles in every ball, New Wave is an eco-conscious, recycled dream, available in a gorgeous selection of inspiring colours. Every strand of this yarn is made of two chainette structures - an inner tube for warmth and strength, and a delicate outer tube that adds subtle texture and a soft finish to your craft work. This makes your completed project light, breathable, and gentle on the skin, perfect for warmer weather garments, or even casual sportswear.

Great for beginners and pros, New Wave Yarn has a beautiful drape and stunning stitch definition, to create some truly unique pieces.

And to complete this yarn’s list of appealing traits, Crazy Sexy Wool comes in a stunning range of shades that include plain colours and tweed mixes, making it even easier for you to get that look you’ve been seeking.

Easy and fun to knit with, Crazy Sexy Wool is designed for beginners and those who need fast results - in less than an hour, you can make a hat, a scarf or even a clutch bag. Why not give it a try and see what you can create?
