Colour me knitty

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Are you a knitter or a crocheter, or would you like to be? Whether you can knock out a scarf in an evening or (like me) you’re ridiculously proud of your painstakingly-crocheted-over-days wee phone case, there’s no time like the present to get knitty with the yarn…

There’s been a huge upsurge in popularity of yarn crafts in recent years. Knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers and naalbinders (I’m probably murdering the Danish language there) are everywhere you turn, making socks and cellphone cases, blankets and high fashion, baby clothes and yarn-bombs.

There are many talented makers of yarn-based creations on Felt and we’re wowed by their work, but did you know that there is also a great range of handmade craft supplies – including hand-dyed fibre and yarn – for those of you crafty folk who like to DIY their ply?


So many beautiful colours! How on earth do you choose? While you’re trying to decide, don’t forget to check out our range of knitting and crochet patterns too!
