We love the Stylecraft Special range and have in stock at the shop over 80 shades of Special DK.
We've recently added the complete range of Special 4ply, Special Superchunky and Special Super Chunky Tweeds and increased our range of Chunky and Aran.
Once we have sold some of our clearance yarns we will have the space to carry the whole range of Stylecraft Special.

Linen drape is the new summer yarn from Stylecraft which blends cool linen with viscose to make a yarn that drapes beautifully and makes the perfect summer evening layer. Pattern support is good in the shape of 8 ladies' patterns, both for outer layers and summer tops.
I've started knitting myself a 3/4 sleeve cardigan for the summer evenings when it's a bit cooler (and let's face it, many of the days too!) and I am loving this yarn! I've chosen the Cranberry colourway which is a deep red, but still has a brightness to it (if a deep dark red is more your thing, check out the Sangria colour, which is very much like a good wine!). It's great to work with, has a lovely weight to it (coming from the linen is my guess) but still feels light and cool in the knitted fabric (due to the viscose). I can already see I'm going to love this cardigan when it's made!
