If you are an experienced Knitter or have just taken up knitting, we have great value quality yarns by the ball for you to knit.

Sirdar also make the Hayfield range of yarns.

James C.Brett Yarns are a UK based manufacturer with great quality yarns.

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.

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

Jenny Watson yarns, Patterns and Books are a fairly new addition to our range. There are 4 yarns at the moment but we are sure more will be available soon.

With 1000's of Pattern Leaflets online, from various manufacturers (including all current BHKC / UKHKA), we are sure you will find something to your taste. All patterns can be found by category, yarn type or number with popular pattern types having their own page - e.g. Toys, Socks, Bags

There is also a big range of Pattern Books including the very popular Jean Greenhowe Toy Collections. All books have a slide show of all the patterns in each book and most show the number of balls needed for each item.

If you have just started knitting we have knitting needles, a how to knit page and lots of accessories. Or perhaps you Crochet – we have a range of crochet hooks and patterns. Remember you can use virtually any yarn to crochet with - we may be called Dianne's Knitting Yarns but we all love Crochet too.

Our Information pages are always worth a look - if you have any tips you want to pass on to other knitters please email them to us, use the Customer Forum, Tweet us or "like" us on Facebook. If you have any questions please check out our FAQ page - it has probably been asked before.

Our Gifts and Accessories pages have lots of Gift Ideas such as Knitting Needle Bags, Artwork Knitting Kits, Scarf Kits and Create Your Own Kits, plus other items like Childrens Knitting Needles, Circular Needles, Pattern Books, Bag Handles, Craft (dishcloth) Cotton, Toy Stuffing, and lots more.

We do not have a catalogue as it would go out of date very quickly - it would also be VERY large.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.

If you have other hobbies as well as knitting, we have a link to the CPU Craft Bits web site for all your Craft needs - including Teddy & Cats Safety Eyes, Safety Noses, Pony Beads, Foam Shapes, Beading Cords, Felt, Magnets, Stems (pipe cleaners), Bells and much more.
