Notes: I love this wool! I’m such a big fan of multicoloured and bright yarn that this yarn is prefect! Only downside is it’s not a centre pull. but I can manage. The whole range is full of gorgeous colours and is a dream to work with. Highly recommend.
This yarn is awesome! This is multicolored yarn without the obvious pattern to it. The colour changes are slow and subtle. The yarn is super soft and slightly chunky, with a recommended hook size of 6.5. I’m using a 7mm hook for the correct tension. This yarn is premium Continue reading Yarn Review: Papatya Colors of Love
Living in a tropical location is awesome, but one of the downsides is the lack of yarn shops. We have two craft stores but not much in terms of specialty shops. I was in Sydney over the weekend for the NRL grand final and came across Morris and Sons. It’s right in the Continue reading Yarn Shop Love: Morris and Sons
The thing that I love most about Stylecraft Special DK is the range of colour! So many awesome shades are available to satisfy every wolly idea. The yarn is super soft and very easy to work with. I have used about 15 balls of wool so far and have yet to come across any of those nasty joins you sometimes find.
This yarn is perfect for blankets, cushions, toys, and just about everything you can imagine. The price is super reasonable and it is a must for any crocheter!
I came across this lovely wool when looking for a purple/green mix. It is aran weight so it’s quite thick and warm. I double stranded the yarn and used a 10mm hook to create a thick blanket. I needed 12 balls of wool to make a decent sized blanket due to the thickness of the yarn. The result was a warm, thick blanket.
This wool was fantastic to use, however slightly expensive for the amount of wool needed. I would use this again, but maybe not double strand the wool.

If you love super soft wool with beautiful colours then you’re in luck! I’ve used the purple and blue variety of this wool and I love it! This wool is extremely soft, much softer than Dancing Baby. The colours available are gorgeous! I double stranded the blue/green and made a super chunky blanket, it is so soft it feels like a cloud! This would be great for a baby blanket or a throw for your bed or lounge.
Available in lots of 4, I use 8 balls of wool to make a fairly decent sized blanket. The gradient in colour is perfect for the corner to corner style blankets!
