#CosywithMarriners winner

As winter drew closer, we focussed on things comfy and cosy for November’s competition theme. A few Christmas goodies snuck their way in, but you responded with enthusiasm and we had a huge amount of entries this month. We saw everything from beautiful blankets and throws, lovely hats, cosy cardigans, snuggly slippers and socks and of course some cold weather-beating scarves and gloves.

Without further ado…

The Magic Mindfulness of Knitting and Crochet

Written by

Over the last few years, mindfulness has become a much sought-after practice and concept. Colouring books, apps, activity books, and thoughtful exercises have all become increasingly popular in our effort to escape our busy lives. With work commitments, social engagements, family responsibilities, general housekeeping tasks – not to mention finding time for yourself – it’s no wonder that more and more people are seeking out ways to calm their minds and think more about the present moment.

Calming mindfulness

Mindfulness has become the modern-day ‘meditation’. For a lot of people, it is not realistic to meditate in the traditional sense and simply take the time to empty your mind of all thoughts; there is often far too much going on in life to regularly find time to meditate, let alone completely clear your mind of any intruding thoughts. Mindfulness offers a useful…

Yarn Bombing

Written by


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…

Knitter Tennis

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…

Buy British Wool

Written by

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.

Keeping Britain Knitting Since 1784

Written by

With over 200 years of supplying the Great British public with yarn, it’s fair to say that Marriner has ‘woven’ it’s way into the hearts of knitting enthusiasts throughout the country.

From our beginnings as a cotton spinning mill in Yorkshire in 1784, right up to selling our yarn online today, our company’s two hundred year history has run parallel with Britain’s love of knitting.

We’re proud to have…
