Titus 4ply: projects and patterns using our classic merino/silk blend yarn

It occurred to us recently that it might be really useful to have an ECY way to browse patterns and projects made using specific yarns, for inspiration and ideas. It's one of those things where once you think of it it seems blatantly obvious 🙈🤣  Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere.  Titus 4ply is probably our best selling yarn and is a firm favourite with many of our customers. It's certainly one of the oldest types and the fact that it is still going strong...

Askham 4ply: projects and patterns using alpaca/silk yarn

This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for a specific yarn. There are projects that use it, and patterns that call for it. It's so handy to have all this in one place!  Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere. If they're only available on Ravelry we will say that, but not link to it.  Askham 4ply is well known and loved as our mill dyed range that is no longer in production. As the stock came to an end we...

Introducing: The Shawl Project Book 5 from The Crochet Project, featuring laceweight yarn!

The latest book from Joanne and Kat of The Crochet Project has arrived. Book 5 is a bit different from those that have come before as it features designs using laceweight yarn.

This book combines the great design you would expect from Joanne and Kat along with the delicate elegance created with laceweight yarn. Find it on the website HERE. All five designs are pitched at intermediate crochet skill level but the Love Triangles Shawl can be adjusted to...

Milburn 4ply and DK in Dogwood - not just for Christmas! ❤️

Our beautiful classic red, Dogwood, was initially a colour found on Whitfell DK. Due to its popularity and the discontinuing of the base we wanted it to live on and so it was included in the fourth wave of new colours of Milburn 4ply. As alluded to in the title, this is definitely a very festive red, evocative of holly berries and the suits of jolly men, but we don't think it should be confined to the winter months!   Designs using Dogwood These are patterns where the colourway featured in the photos, and called for in the pattern is Dogwood. 😍...
