Say hello to Marriner’s new flock…

Written by

Marriner Yarns has welcomed our very own flock of Romney Marsh sheep.

We are excited to start this journey with our own special flock and are looking forward to bringing our customers along every step of the way. The ladies have been getting to know their new home and are already looking rather fleecey. You will see more of them as they grow their fleece, when little lambs start frolicking, when they are sheared, and right up until we launch our very own Marriner wool.

What are Romney Marsh sheep?

Originating from the coast in Kent, The Romney has grown to be a huge part of sheep industries all over the world. They are a large and extremely hardy breed that shows resistance to disease and worms that might otherwise affect alternative breeds of sheep.

Romney’s produce ‘long-wool’…

The rise of the great-value, budget yarn

Written by

Since the 40s and 50s, acrylic fibres have provided an alternative to natural fibres and made cheap and value yarns accessible to everyone who knits, crochets or works with yarn.

While natural fibres, such as wool or alpaca, are still very much sought after and natural fibres undoubtedly produce some beautiful yarns, these qualities and textures are being recreated by man-made fibres and turned into extremely affordable yarns that are now more popular than ever before.

Is acrylic yarn better than natural yarn?

There are advantages and disadvantages to natural and man made materials, but just because low cost or…

The weather certainly didn’t get the memo this month, but we wanted to mark the month of spring’s arrival with a suitably spring-y theme! We asked for anything and everything floral and…

Spring has finally arrived…

Written by

The weather may not have got the memo, but spring is officially here! We have certainly had enough of snow getting in the way and are fairly sure it’s illegal to be this cold in the UK so close to April…

Despite the weather, we are looking ahead to blue skies and sunshine and thinking about what we can create with the beautiful spring shades we have swimming around in our heads. We’re fancying a cotton-look sleeveless top, a cute cardigan for the kiddies and maybe a new colourful jumper to see us through until this cold spell disappears. We’re…

Catch-up on the Knitting and Stitching Show

Written by

As many of you may know, Marriner Yarns made the trek to London through the snow, on the last day of February, ready to welcome our customers to The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia. We made it to the centre before the Beast from the East struck in full force and were able to set up and get everything ready as planned.

We know that not everyone was able to make it to the show, be it because of the weather, distance, or just general life activities taking priority, so we thought we would share some lovely moments…
