We know that our customers love to show off their knits or their crochet projects – and quite rightly too, you clever bunch – which is why we decided to reward one of you every single month.

Each month you can share your projects with us on social media for entry into our prize draw and the chance to win a £50 voucher to spend on MarrinerYarns.com.

#MarrinerSummer winner

This month we have had loads of bright and summery knits and crochets. We have seen beautiful handbags, shawls, baby clothes and so much more. But as always one stood out for us

Without further ado…check out this months winner Suze Morris and her stunning bag. We loved everything about it, from the beach hut design to all the extra pockets, this really did stand out!

Marriner DK washability

Written by

Knitting or crocheting anything with yarn is incredibly satisfying, but when it comes to washing those precious garments, blankets, and other creations, it can create a slight pang of anxiety. Should you wash it warm? Cold? Does it need to be hand washed? Will it affect the quality? Will it run, stretch, or alter the fit? Should I even wash it at all…?

These are all valid questions that arise when faced with a handmade item – after all, it doesn’t usually come with a handy label telling you how to care for it. When it comes to yarns, the…

New balls please…that’s new balls of yarn

It’s that time of year again; the sun is shining, strawberries and cream are at the ready and Murray Mountain’s population is growing by the second – it’s Wimbledon! But as the above picture would suggest, the action on centre court has proved to be incidental for this knitting enthusiast.

Long regarded as one of the hottest tickets in town, tennis…

Our Fastest Selling Yarn | Marriner Yarns

Written by

At Marriner, it’s safe to say that in our 200 plus years of selling yarn, we’ve almost ‘seen it all’. We say ‘almost’ as this week we’ve seen an unprecedented demand for our yarns, in particular our Marriner Mermaid Double Knit 100g.
