Yarn Stories

Saturday 4th May 2019

I am asked quite a lot in the shop for a 100% wool baby yarn for extra special garments for extra special babies - and so after a little bit of research I have added some of Yarn Stories 100% Fine Merino DK to the shelves. Not necessarily a baby yarn, but this yarn is so very soft that it can be used for any baby project.

Yarn Stories is a kind of spin off from Stylecraft yarns - I am told it is a passion of one of the directors to make high quality yarn from high quality fibres, and I absolutely love this product. Super soft with a lovely smooth feel to it, it glides over the needles and is a pleasure to knit with. I have chosen some 'baby' colours for now, but there are many beautiful 'grown up' colours too and the patterns available are fabulous.

Another great thing about Yarn Stories Fine Merino DK is that it is produced here in England - in a traditional old mill in Yorkshire, steeped in history and tradition.

So if you are looking for something a little bit extra special then this may be just for you...I'm about to start a little garter stitch cardigan in the natural colour for a special little girl bump my daughter is growing - I've got until September so I should manage to finish it!!

You can find this beautiful yarn here, we hope you like it as much as we do!!
