Rainbow YarnRecently I noticed our Instagram looked like a rainbow, an illuminating array of rainbow colour. Seeing this has inspired me to write this blog post about rainbow yarn and share what delights are out there. Not just self striping, multi - coloured hanks, individual balls of colour too, that you can create your own rainbow with.
Over the past couple of months we have taken in a new brand - Caron. The first yarn to join us was Caron Simply Soft, with over 50 shades to choose from. This one really is an incredible rainbow of colour. With so many colours to choose from this yarn is a must for anyone who enjoys making colour palettes. The way the yarn has been displayed in the Craft Barn flowing through the colour spectrum is just too tempting. There is something quite therapeutic when methodically arranging yarns in according to their hue.
Eve is a Saturday girl at the Craft Barn, her Grandma has crocheted a rainbow blanket in Caron Simply Soft for her to take to Leeds festival this summer.
Then Caron Cakes arrived. A swirl of colour wound temptingly into one large cake of yarn. Now cake and yarn are two of our favourite things, so combining the two is amazing! The colour combinations in these beauties are gorgeous. There are 18 shades to choose from, some tonal, others complimenting colour combinations. If you are looking for rainbow yarn then look no further than the shade 'Rainbow Sprinkles'.
Debbie Bliss always has a good colour range and Rialto DK does not disappoint. A sophisticated shade range to entice your knitting needles or crochet hook to venture into a new project. Choosing colours is part of the process and very much a fun task it is.
Now who couldn't resist a rainbow yarn sock? These cheery colour combinations from West Yorkshire Spinners are sure to make you smile. Their Signature 4ply is very popular amongst sock knitters. There are one shade, striped and bird inspired options to choose from. However, if it is rainbow yarn you are after then 'Rum Paradise' is the one, or feeling more pastel - 'Sherbet Fizz'.
Debbie Bliss has recently taken Botany Lace under her yarn umbrella. Take a look at the shade 'Ronda', a gorgeous rainbow yarn.
Sirdar's cake yarn - Colourwheel DK has a fantastic aptly named yarn called 'Follow the Rainbow'. As you can see it does echo its name quite accurately.
If we're talking a rainbow of yarn then you can't miss out Stylecraft Special DK. All those shades to choose from to make your bespoke rainbow. How about Sue Stratford's Rainbow Blanket crochet kit?
It's not just yarn, we also have fabrics that are bursting with a rainbow of colour. The Freespirit Designer Solids range has all the colours you need to make a vibrant quilt.
