Yarn of the Month - YarnArt Jeans Plus

It's that time again! We are sharing with you one of our (many) favourite yarns! (AND this month, you can win a bundle of this awesome yarn - so be sure to read to the end to find out how!)

This May we are all about the YarnArt Jeans Plus - this is the aran weight version of the very popular Jeans cotton/acrylic mix yarn from YarnArt. Perfect for making summery versions of pretty much any pattern that uses aran weight yarn, including tops, summer hats and bags, and it's ideal for amigurumi, too!

What's not to love!!

We are very much heading into holiday season now, and this year perhaps more than ever people are excited to get away, even if it's just for a mini-break!

If you are planning a getaway anytime soon, then you're probably going to want to take your yarn projects with you. There's nothing more relaxing than putting your feet up and getting to work on a yarn project (unless you start an epic project that requires a lot of brainpower - maybe leave that one behind for another time)

It's no secret that we are huge yarn crafting fans (the clue's in the name wink) but we largely focus on knitting and crochet, which are the most popular forms of yarn crafting.

In this blog post however, we are venturing out, and taking a look at the art of Stick Weaving!

Yarn of the Month: Cygnet Scrumpalicious Super Chunky Chenille Yarn

It sounds like something out of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory... but it is in fact a range of yarn - and a truly scrumptious one at that!!

Cygnet's Scrumpalicious Super Chunky Chenille Yarn (it's definitely a mouthful!) is as delicious as it sounds. It is soft, squidgey and cuddly, with a gorgeous range of colours for a myriad of projects.

And that is why, it is our yarn of the month for February!

This month it's all about the utterly gorgeous Cygnet Chunky Chenille Velvet Yarn! The photos on our website do not do this yarn justice (you'll understand when you hold it in your hand for the first time!)

This squishable and velvet-textured yarn is just gorgeous, with its silky-smooth texture and super-soft feel it is a pleasure to work with. There are 12 shades to choose from with some gorgeous deep, jewel-like tones as well as pastel colours perfect for baby projects.

As you might be able to tell, we're a little bit in love with this one...

With Christmas just around the corner, you have either got everything sorted and are looking for some enjoyable projects for the festive season (give yourself a pat on the back whilst the rest of us frantically run around chaotically!!) Or, you are in need of some inspiration for some quick gift ideas that you could make (because you're short on time, and who doesn't love a handmade gift?!)
