Special DK

Stylecraft's Special yarns are class leaders, arguably the best 100% premium acrylic yarn on the market with a huge number of colours to choose from. This yarn has a super soft handle, is naturally anti pilling and tough enough to handle being thrown in the washing machine. The Special range includes 4-ply, DK, Aran, Chunky, XL and Baby qualities in a fabulous range of colours to meet every knitter (and crocheters) needs.

Batik

The original palette was influenced by the rich and opulent colours of Morocco but the range has expanded to include more subtle shades too.
