Sirdar Ophelia

Sirdar Ophelia is a beautifully soft chunky faux fur effect yarn with just a little sparkle, perfect for adding a little hint of glamour this festive season.  This on trend yarn is available in both rich jewel colours and sophisticated neutrals so there’s a shade for everyone.  You can find patterns for this yarn including this season’s popular fluffy jumpers here.  Ophelia knits up quickly into a lovely fabric with a nice drape and with no mohair it’s suitable for the most sensitive of skins and is easy to care for too!

Sirdar Head Start

Head Start

This kit comes with all the yarn and ready made fluffy faux fur pompom you need to make one of these trendy hats, with the simple pattern on the label as well!  You can make of of these hats in a evening so it’d make a great last minute gift.  The kit would make a lovely gift for a knitter as well.

Nearly Decemeber

As it is nearly December we have been creating new images just to show how Christmasy we are … One for our website, one for Facebook, one for Twitter etc etc… very fun and very festive. We have had some lovely stock in this week that would again make great Christmas presents. Check out these new Swarovski Crystal Knitting needles,


Click on the images to enlarge them and drool over their beauty! 148 Swarovski Crystals Circular 10mm x 80cm Needle Set. The addiArt edition is the cherry on top of addi’s needle assortment . All their passion for handcrafting and beautiful things evolves in a surprising and inspiring collectors edition. The first one in the edition is the addiArt Diamond. A circular knitting needle size 10mm x 80cm which we fill up by hand with 148 precious Swarovski elements. Pure luxury for all senses, beautiful to look at and great to knit with. addiArt needles are only produced on one single day and are therefore a rare encounter. A one of special edition set not to be repeated. Attractively boxed this makes an ideal unique Christmas present for a loved one.

Next up we have The Turbo Felting Machine,

     AddiQuickFelt2L  AddiQuickFeltLaddiquick_850-2L[1]

Felting was never this fast: with addiQuick you can make accessories, ornaments, figures, quilts and even shoes from wool in the blink of an eye. The addiQuick felting machine shoots the needle 2,500 times per minute into the fabrics and the fibres felt very quickly. With the help of the addiQuick you can work wonderful shapes. The felting with needles makes felting more precise and quicker than the wet felting method. Again this makes a great Christmas present.
