Bulky Blanket Yarn – Marriner’s New Guest Yarn

Written by
Marriner Yarns | Special Guest Yarn | Bernat Blanket Yarn

Autumn has arrived and we can think of nothing else but getting cosy every evening and delving into our knitting and crochet – and what else to create during autumn other than a soft and snuggly blanket?

We know that you are all pulling out your projects now that our scorcher of a summer has finished, and it looks like the windy and rainy weather has certainly announced that autumn is most definitely here. Perfect weather for hiding under a blanket – but first you need to make it!

At Marriner, our own blanket kits in DK, Chunky, and Super Chunky have proven to be extremely popular, and we have heard your requests for bigger and squishier yarn that would create huge blankets – and no yarn could be more perfect for…

In August, we wanted to celebrate everyone’s favourite characters, themes and creations from the world of books. It felt like the perfect theme to allow us an excuse to settle down with a good book, whether that’s while sunbathing in the garden this summer, or looking ahead to those nights curled up by the fire.

Without further ado…

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.

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…

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…
