Sublime yarns are top quality yarns made from Italian Silk, Cashmere, Merino, Angora Wools and cottons. They give excellent stitch definition while being soft to the touch. We only keep a few in stock but the rest are available by the pack on a Pre-order basis. However we do have all their pattern books in stock which contain some delightfully beautiful designs.

StyleCraft yarns are great quality with a good mix of Baby, Fashion and Classic yarns.

Remember you can use virtually any yarn to crochet with - we may be called Dianne's Knitting Yarns but we all love Crochet too.

We do not have a catalogue as it would go out of date very quickly - it would also be VERY large. Everything we supply is on this website. We are also unable to get shade cards for the yarns - these are difficult to get out of the manufacturers (most no longer make them at all) and are too expensive (in both money and time) for us to produce.
