As fibre artists, when we think of quality, affordability and reliability it’s hard not to think of King Cole. One of the most recognized brand names on the market, King Cole Yarns are a sign of excellence in any fine yarn shop, and a symbol of high repute among knitters and crocheters.
We have great new additions to the King Cole line up for Fall/Winter that we can’t wait to tell you about, so keep reading to make sure you are on top of all the new trends for the season ahead.
We all know it and we all love it! This tried and true 75% acrylic, 25% wool blend is one of our best-selling yarns for its versatility and washability.
Available in twenty-three earthy, warm shades with fun names like Orkney, Islay and Skye that will have you dreaming of Northern Scottish islands. Perfect for all the Outlander and Shetland fans out there.
As the name implies, Fashion Aran is simply perfect for traditional Aran and cable knits. Whether it be in a solid colour or a subtle tweed, you can never go wrong with a classic, timeless pattern. Best of all, Fashion Aran is available in either 400 gram/800 meter balls, or 100 gram/200 meter balls! Got a big project? No problem, we’ve got a big ball of yarn for that! Less ends to weave in always makes for happy knitters.
In keeping with tradition, King Cole has a fabulous selection of patterns for Fashion Aran, and they are always adding new, contemporary designs like these comfy sweaters and poncho. They not only look like they would be super cozy to wear, they look like they would be fun to knit too!
In an effort to make it easy for you to find which patterns correspond with our yarns, we have grouped the patterns beside the yarn on our website, so when you scroll down to Fashion Aran for example, you will find all the coordinating patterns right there. Easy peasy! See a pattern or a yarn you like? Ask the helpful staff at your LYS if they have it in stock, or if they would order it in for you.
New Drifter Aran
Last year knitters and crocheters asked the burning question at their LYS and King Cole listened! After the huge success with both Drifter Chunky and Drifter DK, many of you wondered about an Aran weight and we are happy to announce that Drifter Aran is now available!
Drifter Aran is a soft and colourful yarn, perfect for blankets, housewares, slipper socks, and warm weather sweaters.
A welcome addition to the Drifter family, this self-striping yarn with a subtle jacquard pattern is machine washable and absolutely addictive to knit with!
Drifter Aran is comprised of 79% premium acrylic, 17% cotton and 4% wool, an excellent blend that creates a durable and breathable fabric with great elasticity. Each 100-gram ball packs an amazing 220 meters, meaning one ball is all you will need for a stylish hat or mittens. There are seven stunning shades to choose from and six coordinating patterns that are sure to feed your creative energy. Sweaters, ponchos, hats and cowls – how will you decide which one to knit first?! With 5mm needles, these patterns can be knit in no time meaning it’s not too late to get started on your Fall wardrobe. You’ll be the most stylish person on your block!
If you’ve ever knit with Drifter DK or Drifter Chunky then you know as well as we do that Drifter Aran is going to be a hugely popular yarn this Winter. Self patterning, washable and downy soft – what’s not to love?
Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!
