Knitting Yarns

Our carefully curated range of knitting yarns gives you all of the choices you are looking for and much more. With hundreds of yarns from the finest brands to choose from, you are able to fashion whatever your imagination can conjure. Why not embrace colour or explore new fibres? From super chunky yarn to Aran and from cashmere to alpaca, you have exciting possibilities at your fingertips.

The finest knitting yarn brands

Perhaps you have a favourite brand that you can rely on or maybe you are looking to explore new options. Either way, the amazing choices from Rowan, Sirdar, West Yorkshire Spinners, Sublime, Snuggly and more are guaranteed to inspire you.

Knitting yarns for every project

It’s always nice to discover the perfect yarn for your project. Whether you are fashioning knitwear to reflect the latest trends or are crafting gifts for the grandkids, you will find the right yarn here at Karelia House. There’s a rainbow of colours to work with together with incredible textures. Wonderful worsteds and a plethora of double knitting yarns will vie for your attention and inspire new ideas.

Knitting yarn fibres

We all refer to yarns as wool, but of course many yarns aren’t wool at all! We do have wonderful natural wools for you to choose from but also mohair, cashmere, cotton, polyester and acrylic yarns. Your needles will be very busy indeed when you treat yourself to gorgeous mohair and silk blends for the lightest scarfs or soft and gentle yarns designed to caress babies’ skin.

Chasing the rainbow

Colour excites, inspires and enables us to shine. It’s the primary reason why we are attracted to the clothing and accessories that we choose. Our knitting yarn range features amazing shades and colourful effects to work with. Choose from perfect pinks, beautiful blues, ravishing reds or subtler tones and experiment with self-striping, ombre, marled and heathered yarns.

Personal taste and your project

Your choice of yarn will be partly project-dependant and partly a matter of personal taste. Our extensive and diverse range ensures that you will find the right knitting yarns for every piece. Whether you are crafting a colourful showstopper or something more practical that’s machine washable, you will never exhaust the possibilities of our knitting yarns.
