Bring on the Cold Weather

Boy, do we have a bumper launch for you this month, with lots of new yarns, shades and patterns to try and enjoy.

Life Vintage Look

Launched last year, Life Vintage Look is a beautiful melange of harmonious shades that knit up to give a subtle striped effect.  We are launching six pattern leaflets featuring beautifully wearable jumpers, cardigans and accessories, showcasing our three new shades – Moorland, Prairie and Volcano.

Alpaca Tweed

We know how much you love the Alpaca Tweed family of yarns so we have news shades AND new patterns for you.

Alpaca Tweed DK welcomes two new shades – Orchid and Marine featuring in designs which have a distinctly modern feel with unusual cables twists, cropped tops and fluted sleeves. But it’s not just about the garments, we have essential accessory designs including two ponchos, featuring lace stitches, and two colourful shawls, perfect for wrapping yourself up in.

We have added two new classic shades to the Alpaca Tweed Chunky palette – Blush and Emperor.  This yarn is just right for the colder weather and our lovely patterns feature richly cabled jumpers and cardigans to keep the chill at bay, as well as cosy shawls and a wonderful geometric cushion design by crochet superstar Annelies Baes.


What a feast of patterns we have to offer you in Weekender, a delicious super chunky yarn.  The collection includes textured sleeveless tops, cardigans, a jumper with a bold lace leaf design as well as super-cute bags and a special cushion and blanket set by Annelies Baes.  The Weekender palette has expanded to include three new colours – Greenstone, Old Rose and Silver.

Swift Knit Mega

For that catwalk-ready, over-sized look you can’t do better than Swift Knit Mega.  Not only is this a sumptuous yarn but its combinations of colours are designed to fit into any wardrobe.  The cosiest of designs include garments, an on-trend wrap, scarves, cowls, hats and gloves.  Or why not bring some texture into your home with our cushion designs.  For this season there are five new shades – Ash, Flint, Heather, Peony and Wedgewood

With so much on offer, we are curious to know which yarn you will try first. Tell us by leaving a comment on our Facebook page, by the 31st of October, and one of you will win some lovely yarn featured in this blog!
