To commemorate the fact that the wonderful British summertime has finally arrived, we’ve launched our brand new range of summer yarns! In a range of beautiful summer colours, our quality yarn is available in Duck Egg, Grass Green, Fuchsia, Lilac and more. These yarns are a great everyday double knitting yarn on 3.5mm needles, suitable for a range of projects.

The 2018 summer catwalk is brimming with gorgeous shades of purple, yellow, blue and green so we thought we’d give you some ideas on how to create some summer fashions out of our new yarn. You’re sure to be on trend, whatever you decide to create!

Why not make a skirt for the warmer days, or a lightweight jumper for the summer evenings when there’s a little chill in the air. Oversized jumpers are really on trend at the moment and have been seen at fashion shows being worn as a second layer over a dress or a thin t-shirt.

Seeing as it’s the season of outdoor festivals, you could also use our colourful new yarn to make a crop top or t-shirt and pair it with your favourite lightweight trousers.

We are inspired by Zara’s bright pink and red striped crop top with scalloped trim detail, and because purple is also a big colour on the catwalks this year, we think you could use Fuchsia and Cyclamen to knit your own fabulous version!

If crop tops aren’t really your thing, don’t miss issue 48 coming soon which features a gorgeous halter top which you could make with our summer colours! It’s flattering, lightweight and can be worn with a skirt, shorts or trousers. It also has side shaping for a comfortable fit and it can be made with normal shoulder straps if you prefer.

Give our halter neck top more of a festival vibe with our new yarn and add stripes to it if you want to be even more on trend!

Check out the summer yarn collection in our online shop. We can’t wait to see what beautiful creations you make and don’t forget to show us by tagging us on Facebookor Instagram.
