Wendy Roam & Roam Fushion - NEW

New to Wendy is Roam & Roam Fusion - with sock knitting very much en vogue at the moment we are thrilled to introduce our own 4ply sock yarns. Roam offers five solid colours inspired by the old St Ives range, whilst Roam Fusion offers five bright and bold colour mixes. Our sock pattern has been produced to be a free giveaway with a purchase of the yarn. One ball will knit a pair of socks and the Roam and Roam Fusion colours complement each other perfectly so the knitter can create a truly unique pair of socks. Such a fantastically colourful yarn need not necessarily be used solely for knitting socks and we are sure many customers will be experimenting with it for other projects, as will the design team.


Wendy Celtic Chunky

New Wendy Celtic is a chunky, tweed effect yarn in a range of muted earthy tones which give it an real outdoor feel, one can’t help but imagine being clad in a Celtic garment wandering through the woods on an autumn day. Celtic, due to its look and range of earthy colours, is very much a unisex yarn and our design package features comfortable fashion garments that are light to wear but also lovely and warm. With the  choice of location for the photo shoot and some help from our feathered friends we have tried to give our new leaflets an interesting twist and we hope the images front and back will be well received.  This yarn has a lovely feel to it.

Wendy Thor Super Chunky

New to Wendy - Thor is a mega chunky yarn in an exciting range of blended colours. It is ideal for customers who favour a quick knitting project and most of our accessories can be made in an evening. Though the yarn is sumptuously bulky it is still light enough to create full garments. It is truly a delight to use (Dawn in our Marketing/Design team for one is hooked!)

As accessories form the majority of home knitting projects and Thor is set to be one of our more expensive yarns, we have included a good range of fashion and home accessories in our design package, all of which can be completed using a few balls. Not wanting to limit such a fantastic yarn to just the realms of accessories we have also created some full garments. We have endeavoured to bring a striking new look to our Thor leaflets, using a dynamic location and producing them with colour images both front and back.
