Stylecraft Softie Chunky
Whilst this isn't strictly New In, Stylecraft have brought out 4 new shades which really brighten the colourways available for this fun yarn. The yarn is light and airy thanks to its loosely spun construction whilst retaining good stitch definition for cabled items.
Stylecraft Softie now comes in 10 shades, making a really nice palette that encompasses both brights and neutrals. There is good pattern support available in store, just look for the "Stylecraft Ladies Chunky Patterns" folder on the pattern bookcase. It also has a tension that makes it a good yarn to use for any Chunky pattern.

We are really pleased to have begun stocking the Life range of yarns from Stylecraft! I'm sure many of you will be aware of this great yarn, but for those who aren't, allow me to introduce you!
Stylecraft Life takes all the positives of their premium acrylic found in the Special range, such as it's softness, durability, ease of washing, and blends it with 25% wool to make it even better. A little bit of extra warmth but with none of the inconvenience of a pure wool yarn (scratchy and unforgiving when it's time to wash it!) - who can say no to that!
I have knit 2 garments for my parents using Life DK as they need to be warm (My poor mum is always freezing!) and easy to care for as they are not used to having to care for hand knitted items. I picked Denim and Blue Haze as blue is the family's favourite colour and they came out so well, were a really lovely knit and very much appreciated! They have been worn consistently since I gifted them and still look perfect.
