It’s going to be an exciting Autumn Winter season from Stylecraft

Tuesday 10th July 2018


It may seem odd to be talking about yarns for the colder months when we are in the middle of summer, but yarn companies traditionally start to launch their new yarns towards the end of June, so that you can complete your pattern before the weather turns chilly

We have some exciting new yarns that will be in your yarn shop very soon, so we thought we would showcase some of them for you.

We are introducing a new member to the Life family, called Life Changes. Available in 8 rich, semi-solid shades, Life Changes is supported by 7 pattern leaflets including 3 for ladies, 3 for girls and 1 featuring accessories. The designs are simple yet stylish, with subtle dashes of texture to really bring out the beauty of this yarn. 

Life DK is a very popular yarn across a whole range of projects from garments to accessories and designs for the home. This season there are 5 new, deeply rich shades to enhance the existing palette, with 7 pattern leaflets for ladies and girls.  These classic designs are embellished with tipping and stripes, as well as textures and cables.  Perfect for any winter wardrobe.

What could be nicer than chunky cables for the chilly months ahead? We are launching 3 subtle new shades in Special Aran with Wool featured in 4 new designs, which showcase garments and accessories. So, whether you are planning long walks in the country or want an on-trend garment for everyday wear, Stylecraft has an option for you. These patterns for 400g balls are cleverly designed with matching accessories to use up leftover yarn.

Finally, we have an exciting exclusive for you. The delightful Sandra Paul, one of the Stylecraft Blogstars, who writes under the name Cherry Heart, has created a blanket and cushion combo using one of our most successful semi-solid yarns – Batik.  The crochet pattern features the kind of colours that Sandra is so fond of, put together in her own unique way.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our social media for more launches in the coming weeks.
