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…

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.

Is acrylic yarn better than natural yarn?

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