Dianne has been retailing knitting yarns for almost 60 years and during that time has encouraged many new knitters to take up the ART! 

She is often asked - Why knit when you can buy ready made garments so cheap?

You get much more choice; choice of pattern; choice of yarn; choice of colour; and the pride you feel when someone you love wears something you have made is immeasurable. Plus, as your skills increase, you can adjust the patterns to the exact size you need - short arms, not a problem - long body, not a problem - you are in control of the size. You can also create unique garments which stand out or household items to exactly match your decor.

Why use Dianne's Knitting Yarns?

We were one of the first knitting yarn Companies to go online in February 2000, long before the big guys. For more info on how and why we started up then please check out the CPU Enterprises Blog. Our website has grown from just a few yarns to many hundreds, but we still believe in the core reasons we started DKY. We pride ourselves in the fact we care; care about the quality; care about the price; and care about you, the customer

We don't dabble with a few popular yarns from lots of suppliers, we prefer to supply as many as we can from a few quality manufacturers. So we try to supply all Sirdar, Sublime, Jenny Watson, Hayfield and James Brett yarns - many of which are in stock 'by the ball', with the rest available on special Pre-order - we were also the first online retailer to do this which many have copied.

The quality of Sirdar yarn is well known, Hayfield yarns are high quality at a very reasonable price. Our James C.Brett lines includes some lovely baby yarns. Jenny Watson is fairly new on the block but has some beautiful yarns. The Sublime Range of yarns are Quality Italian Yarns at their best at a very reasonable price. We also have some yarns and patterns from Crafty Knits, Stylecraft and elle.

There is a massive number of pattern leaflets and books online, most have full details so you know exactly what you need - we were also the first online retailer to do this. They are listed by Manufacturer or Ply or Type so you should be able to find what you need. If you need needles or other accessories these can also be supplied. We also have other items which make ideal gifts, these will change on a regular basis.

Our web site is constantly under review with items changed regularly, so please keep browsing and take a look at what we offer, e-mail us with any questions, get in touch via any of the social media below, and order via our online secure shopping basket. Our aim is your satisfaction.
