Yarn Bombing

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet and everyone at Marriner Yarns has got that summer feeling.

The chances are you’re just like us; having a few family and friends over for a BBQ, doing a spot of gardening or simply working on that tan. However for some of you out there, the Great British Heat Wave is seen as a chance to demonstrate your knitting prowess in it’s most exhibitionist and ninja stealth form – yarn bombing!

We never fail to be amazed at the talent, hard work and gumption that has gone into some of the fabulous examples that…

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…

British Wool | Marriner Yarns

Written by

With knitting yarn coming in so many different thicknesses, colour variations and textures it’s easy to forget where British knitting began – wool.

At Marriner our very first yarns were wool yarns, spun in a Yorkshire mill back in 1784. Since then it’s fair to say that we’ve moved with the demands of our customers, offering acrylic based yarns to meet current trends. However we’ve always taken a great sense of pride in remaining true to our roots, incorporating British Wool into our range whenever possible.

On a sunny morning in June, we were delighted to be invited along to a…

Marriner Space | A New Double Knit

Written by


At Marriner we’re known and loved for a lot of things; Britain’s oldest knitting yarn since 1784, our unbeatable prices and of course, our renowned Double Knitting yarn. At marrineryarns.com we currently offer over thirty different Double Knitting variations across our Double Knit with Wool, Mermaid and original Marriner Double Knit ranges. With this in mind it’s safe to say that our forthcoming Double Knit yarn, Marriner Space, is going to take our Double Knitting customers to another stratosphere…

We’re afraid that at this moment, we’re…

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.

Sales of Marriner Mermaid have been so rapid, at the time of writing, we’ve now sold out of our Carnival, Pink and Blue Mermaid colours with the just a limited amount of Marriner Sunshine and Pebble remaining on our warehouse shelves. It’s fair to say that our customer’s purchasing of this double…

Buy British Wool

Since the day our Greengate Mill opened in 1784 right up to today, Marriner Yarns has always had a deep rooted affinity with British wool.

In a global market where knitters are always looking for the best yarns at the most competitive prices, it would be easy for a company to lose track of its roots and forget where it’s come from. However at Marriner we’re proud that all of the wool we use in our wool yarns: Marriner Aran with Wool 400g (£5.50)  and Marriner Double Knit with Wool 100g only use British wool.
