Livingstone Textiles in Yeovil holds a wide range of King Cole yarns, and we wanted to give you a taste of what is available in our ranges. Today we are featuring King Cole Drifter, which is a range of self-patterning yarns ranging from 4-ply to Aran weight. All these knitting yarns are sold as 100g balls. These Drifter yarns are held in stock at Livingstone Textiles Yeovil store.
Because of the patterning of the yarn, Drifter Baby is specifically for the baby patterns, as you can see on the dress above it knits up into the perfect pattern on the baby sized clothes. The other Drifter yarns are patterned for adult clothes and will not knit up right on a baby pattern.
Drifter 4-ply is a lovely yarn for the summer months leading into autumn when the nights get chillier but you don’t want a winter weight yarn. These yarns are mostly acrylic which gives softness with added wool and cotton for a superior handle. There is a range of patterns for all these yarns and any colours we do not have in stock can be ordered in so long as you are taking at least 6 balls of wool. You can browse the patterns online at the King Cole website.
For the remainder of this month (June 2019) you can even get a free pattern if you spend over £10 on yarn, so now is the perfect time to stock up on your next project.
