We are primarily a fabric shop, but our lovely customers spoke and we listened, so we now also sell a growing range of yarn.
We stock a range of King Cole yarns in both of our shops, although not yet online. If you’re nearby we’d love to see you so please call in and browse – we think that wool, like fabric, is so much nicer when you can touch it (which is why we happily send out fabric samples). If you need some inspiration, we have a huge range of King Cole patterns for every level of experience, and also some really inspirational pattern books that you’ll want to take home. If you’re struggling to choose, most of our staff are experienced in knitting or crochet, and will be on hand to advise. Wealso carry a growing selection of knitting bits and bobs, because as we know, buying for that new project is almost as much fun as finishing it!
We try to carry a range suitable for most general knitting and crochet projects, so we stock the popular King Cole Fashion Aran in a lovely range of useful colours, some plain and some with a pleasing fleck,
For something a little different, we also stock this gorgeously textured Forest Aran yarn, which is a particular favourite. This is a lighter Aran yarn in a range of soft, subtle colours, and we at Livingstones particularly love it because it’s a wool mix yarn that’s been made from 100% recycled materials.
We love King Cole yarn because the whole range is very affordable as well as being lovely to work with. Our range of DK yarn includes shades from the popular and affordable Pricewise range, which is great for all sorts of knitting and crochet projects. We also stock the gorgeously-tactile DK Merino, as well as this DK Bramble, which is another shop favourite. Bramble is a self-striping yarn in a range of delicious colourways of blending, muted tones. We’ve found that it knits up beautifully for both large and small projects.
Yarn for baby knits
For those of you who are knitting for little ones we carry a large selection of the popular Cherish DK, a lovely soft yarn in a range of colours and in self-patterns and plains.
The self-patterning yarns can be matched with any colours from the range of complementary plains, combining beautifully into both traditional and more contemporary colour combinations that work for every project. In 100% softest premium acrylic, you can be sure that Cherish will make up into the softest of baby knits,
