We are delighted to introduce our new collection of yarns from Cygnet Yarns Ltd.
A relative newcomer on the hand knitting scene, Cygnet Yarns was launched in 2004 by friends Katie Stephenson and Karen Hargreaves. Katie has hand knitting in her blood, with her father Paul Long a veteran of the acrylic yarn trade, and after meeting Karen at work, the pair decided to branch out and set up their own business.
The company had a somewhat difficult start, fighting for recognition amongst the more established brands and trying to throw off a reputation for selling only cheap acrylic yarns. However, it has blossomed over the years and now offers a huge range of different yarns, including pure wool and cotton varieties alongside its great value acrylic products.
This variety, along with a commitment to providing premium quality yarns at the best possible prices, and a reputation for excellent customer service has made it a favourite with hand knitters and crocheters across the world.
This latest collection from Cygnet Yarns has some fantastic products suitable for a wide range of knitting and crochet projects. Here are some of our favourites from the new collection.
The Utopia Chunky yarn from Cygnet Yarns is the perfect choice for chunky knits such as jumpers, cardigans, scarves, and cosy blankets, and also works well in home decor projects. Taking its inspiration from gardens around Britain, this super soft yarn has a colourful, variegated appearance that adds interest and texture to any knitting or crochet project.
The ever-versatile Boho Spirit yarn works well for both knitted and crocheted items, and can be used to make a wide variety of garments and accessories. It comes in a range of vibrant, variegated shades, and its worsted / aran blend gives it a super soft finish, as well as a beautiful, subtle sheen.
The Boho Spirit Solids range benefits from the same subtle sheen and soft texture as the Boho Spirit but, as the name suggests, the yarn comes in solid, vibrant colours rather than variegated shades. This yarn works really well on its own, but it also looks fantastic when combined with Boho Spirit yarn.
If you enjoy making clothes for your little ones, you’ll love the new Kiddie Couture range. This eye-catching, self-striping yarn comes in a variety of bold and bright colours, making it the perfect choice for fun and unique kids clothing or blankets. It also has the added advantage of being easy-care and machine washable, and its extra soft finish is gentle on delicate skin.
For those cosy, chunky knits, opt for the Cygnet Chunky yarn. Suitable for use in any standard chunky knit pattern, this yarn is a great option for quick, easy and big knit projects. It’s also incredibly versatile and can be used for a wide range of knitting and crochet projects, including scarves, cardigans, jumpers and hats. Its large palette of beautiful bright shades also makes it easy to customise items to suit your taste.
This is just a taster of the fantastic Cygnet Yarns products we have available. If you like the look of these, why not check out the full range of yarns we have in stock from this supplier? We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
