King Cole Shadow Chunky
100% acrylic • 100g/152m/167yds • £3.74 • www.deramores.com
This lightweight, chunky, variegated yarn is perfect for getting ahead on your autumn makes, be they hats, scarves, cardies or blankets. It has a tight two-ply weave that doesn’t split, so it crochets up very smoothly, giving a bouncy, soft fabric. All eight colourways have an autumnal nod.
Knitcraft Get Your Fluff On
44% acrylic/26% polyamide/15% Merino wool/15% alpaca • 50g/225m/246yds • £3.00 • www.hobbycraft.co.uk
We’re partial to a bit of fluff and Knitcraft’s great value (on 3 for 2 offer!) blend provides the ’80s nostalgia look without the itchiness we remember! Great for whole garments or as edgings, it is a surprisingly smooth crochet. Only a limited colourway of pink, grey, blue and white is currently available.
Stylecraft Bellissima DK
100% acrylic • 100g/268m/293yd • £3.00 • www.deramores.com
Brand new to the Stylecraft stable, this premium acrylic could well become a staple for blankets and shawls. The rounded twist has a very bouncy feel and makes for super smooth crocheting with good definition and drape. The machine-washable yarn launches at the end of September in 14 colours.
West Yorkshire Spinners Chunky Roving Re:treat
100% wool • 100g/140m/153yds • £6.50 • www.wyspinners.com
Re:treat is the new, gorgeously plump roving from WYS made from a blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Kerry Hill sheep. Dense but lightweight, this is a treat of a chunky weight yarn. Billed as “the perfect yarn to unwind with,” and with real depth and sheen to the 13 colourways, Re:treat is one for the Christmas list.
Stylecraft Colour Pool
100% acrylic • 200g/330m/361yds • £6.99 • www.woolwarehouse.co.uk
Creating planned pooling fabric gets addictive and this new range of aran-weight yarns from Stylecraft is a great way to get started, making it easy to create Argyll-style designs for clothing or accessories. With back-up videos on the Stylecraft website and patterns on the ball bands, the technique is easy to pick up.
