Opal - Beautiful World

There's nothing like a gorgeous colour mixture to remind you how beautiful the world can be. Opal's poetically named range gives you a whole new set of shades to create and experiment with, expanding your ever-growing sock collection, and adding just a little more beauty to the world!

Impressively prolific, Opal has a huge selection of sock yarns in various weights and colours, with new ranges being added faster than you can count. With such amazing choice, you're sure to find the design that's just right for you.

King Cole - Explorer

Giving you the exciting opportunity for some colour exploration, King Cole's Explorer celebrates some of the most famous adventurers of all time. Explorer's creative colour mixes both blend and contrast beautifully making for stunning textured stripes that really bring a garment to life, and add a generous splash of colour to any wardrobe. Made from an excellent acrylic and wool mix that's machine washable and safe to put in the tumble dryer, King Cole Explorer is hard-wearing and long lasting, making it the perfect choice for everyday wear - or for that special piece to accompany you on your travels!

 

Noro - Ito

"Ito means both 'yarn' and 'young' in Japanese - Ito is yarn reborn." - Noro Yarns

More magic made from 100% wool, Noro's Ito adds to the collection of essential aran yarns, with brand new colour mixes and inviting texture. Great for garments and accessories that stand out, this yarn adds a little vibrancy to your knitting, refreshing and reviving your wardrobe. Time for a new beginning, new additions to your yarn stash, and some brand new projects. Knitting reborn!

Malabrigo - Verano

When deciding to add a new plant-based yarn to their collection, 100% Pima Cotton was the obvious choice for Malabrigo. Its softness, strength, and shine are perfect for both warmer weather and those in between times where you just need a little something. Different fibre means different techniques and different dyes, so achieving the same bright and intense colors you expect  was an interesting puzzle for Malabrigo to solve. And solve it they did! Knitting year round with malabrigo just got a little bit cooler.

Novita - Hygge

A thick and warm single ply yarn - just the thing for heavier winter garments and accessories. Novita Hygge comes in a powerful range of striking shades designed to spark your imagination, while the thick strand means your projects will be done in no time. Hygge (pronounced "hoo-ga") is defined as a feeling of comfort, cosiness, and contentment, which we think is perfectly captured by this delightfully squishy yarn; just picture yourself curled up in a comfortable spot with a hot drink and some Novita yarn on your needles. Heavenly. Don't you think it's time you had a little Hygge in your life?

Noro - Bachi

"Bachi are straight oak wooden sticks used to play Japanese taiko drums, sometimes decorated with bells or tassels for performance." - Noro Yarns

In one thick strand of fused fibres that blend like paint, Bachi is a chunky treasure, bringing together all the music and magic that colour can create and inviting the world to celebrate! Made from 100% wool, Bachi has all the unique style and natural texture we've come to expect from Noro yarns, while adding new, gorgeous colour combinations to fuel your imagination.

New Fabric

We are so excited about our ever-growing fabric ranges and some gorgeous new collections have recently been added to brands like Liberty and Craft Cotton Co.

... ...

Liberty - Summer House

The latest collection from the Liberty Fabrics design studio drew inspiration from the interiors of 17th and 19th century orangeries. The Summer House quilting collection illustrates the grand architecture of these structures – paying homage to the details of decorative tiled flooring, iron works and trellises. Archival artworks are translated into conversational prints inspired by citrus fruits, plants and vines weaving amongst detailed ironworks, while floral geometric designs evoke the forms of intricate tiles.

The Summer House collection is available in three distinct colourways, offering a tonal palette that graduates from neutrals to blues with hints of citrus tones and warm reds.

Craft Cotton Co. - London Town

Blue, red and white, the colours that make up The Union Jack and also the palette for this fun collection by Craft Cotton Co. Guards stand to attention, flags are displayed proudly and the city of London is surrounded by black cabs, double decker red buses and well known attractions.

History of Bees CAL 

The History of Bees Shawl CAL by A Spoonful of Yarn is based on the book 'The History of Bees' by Maja Lunde. The book follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees - and to their children and one another - against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis. The debut novel of Norwegian author and screenwriter Maja Lunde, The History of Bees became a bestseller across Europe after it was published in 2015 and was the first debut to win the prestigious Bokhandlerprisen (Norwegian Booksellers’ Prize). This pack is available in 6 colourways, with the Pollen being the original colourway and will start on 20th September until 1st November!

Miarly CAL

                                                                                                                                                                                                   

The Miarly CAL designed by AmyJ Designs is the first CAL by this designer. This pack is available in two colourways, Unicorn and Winterberry both in Stylecraft Special DK. Unicorn uses pastels shades and a variety of different stitches to form a unique patterned blanket. The Winterberry colourway is made up of bold and rich shades and has a beautiful row of flowers to add to the unique design of this blanket. 

Cygnet Geo-Boho CAL

Cygnet Yarns have worked with the amazing designer 'Off The Hook For You' to create this amazing new CAL - Geo - Boho CAL. This is the perfect project for crocheting on a cold autumnal night! The absolute beauty of this project is that it is beginner-friendly. If you can make a US Double / UK treble crochet, this is perfect to teach you some new skills. Each week you will learn a new skill, and then as there are more squares to make, you get to practice these skills.
