Yarn of the Month: Cygnet Seriously Chunky Metallics

We are delighted to announce that Cygnet has just re-launched their fabulous Seriously Chunky Metallics range - and we have them all now back in stock!

With this in mind, we have decided to make this our Yarn of the Month! We don't know how anyone could NOT love this yarn, with its luxury feel and iridescent shine, it brings a sophisticated glamour to the world of yarn!

Here's what you need to know about this yarn:




Why we Love this Yarn

This yarn is a variation on the already popular Seriously Chunky yarn but with that extra added glam! It drapes beautifully making it a chunky yarn you'll feel good wearing. As well as garments, it's perfect for homewares - Can you imagine snuggling up under a blanket made of platinum? We can!


This yarn feels luxurious with its metallic shine, and has a lovely even spin throughout the ball. In short, we think it's a fab selection of yarn that you won't be disappointed with!


And we're not the only ones who think this yarn is pretty special - here's what some of our customers had to say about it:


"Love this yarn! Lovely and chunky and a lovely colour." - Angharad

"Absolutely beautiful wool to crochet with." - Clare

"Lovely colour and the usual very high quality from Cygnet that knits like a dream." - Karen




Cygnet has just released some more free patterns for its super chunky weight yarn which we think would work great with this metallic range:



The Knitted Cropped Basketcase Sweater is and the Crocheted Cropped Cardigan would keep you cosy this winter, and with the shimmer that you get from the metallics range, you can make a lovely statement piece. The Knitted Scarf pattern would make a gorgeous gift this Christmas - and with the seriously chunky range you could make this glamourous gift in double-quick time!


There are lots more free patterns to be found on the Cygnet yarns site for hats, cowls, scarves and more - all perfect for this time of year.


Why not try combining the standard Seriously Chunky range in with the metallics like this Metallic Striped Crochet Blanket:



Or go all out and make that platinum blanket we mentioned earlier! wink



Colour Combinations We Love

As yarns go, this one is pretty special - especially for this time of year! If you're looking to add that festive edge to your projects then this is a great choice!

Whether you are looking for the traditional red and green, or something more wintery - we think these combos are perfect:
