Cygnet Yarns produce a great range of yarns which offers great value for money.
When we started stocking their products, we did not know that it would prove to be a very popular brand.
We have come to love this brand and that is why we decided to build a website shop selling just Cygnet Yarns.
There are some definite favorite’s in the range that we think our customers will love.
During the winter season there is usually an increase in people wanting chunky wool, we sell standard chunky as well as the Super Chunky in the Cygnet range.
One of the easiest yarns to try if you are a new knitter or like projects that work up quickly is the Seriously Chunky Yarns.
This knits up using 10 – 12mm needles.
You don’t need many stitches on your needles to have a large piece of knitting that is soon worked row by row to produce something to see very quickly.
There’s a great choice of solid plain shades and also Prints and Mixes, which gives a patterned effect when knitted up.
I decided to have a go at knitting a small pouffe rather than buying one, used 3 of these yarns in different colours at the same time so got a mega chunky knit and used 25mm needles.
Got it knitted up in no time, stuffed it with toy stuffing, which in hindsight probably wasnt the right kind of stuffing to use, a bit too soft, but it was OK.
Our little Yorkie dog Baxter now uses it to sleep on at home or jump around on when he’s feeling playful!
The Cygnet DK yarns are brilliant for all kinds of knitting and crochet items and there are so many colours to choose from, there shouldnt ever be a problem finding something you like for your next project.
One of Cygnets latest lines is the new BABYCAKES – Blanket In a Ball.
It’s a 300g Aran weight ball of mixed colour’s ( theres 5 to choose from) and they have included 2 free patterns on the inside for baby blankets to knit.
I gave a ball of this for my daughter to try, shes a crochet addict and starting up as a designer of crochet patterns, she crocheted a baby blanket in a ball of this and we think it looks great.
So whatever really tickles your fancy, baby knits to super chunky projects, knitting to crochet, Cygnets extensive range will have something for everyone.
