May 2022 Newsletter

Welcome to our First Newsletter of 2022.

This newsletter includes lots of new items added to our website this year, including some yarns from recycled fibres, and a reminder about the Wendy/Peter Pan new yarns survey.

New items

There have been lots of new yarns and patterns, for full details take a look at our Customer Forum or the New Items page on our website.

We have the 4 newest colours (MT57 to MT60) of James C. Brett Marble Double Knit in stock plus the following 4 new pattern leaflets (JB757 to JB760) that showcase these shades.

James C.Brett Marble DK Pattern Leaflets

James C. Brett has not always produced their own patterns, so some of their original yarns, such as Baby Aran, have been Patternless.

Until now

We now have the 6 new pattern leaflets for their Baby Aran in stock for Prem to about 12 months - 31cm to 51cm chest (12-20 inch)

UKHKA Pattern Leaflets

Quite rightly, there is a trend towards manufacturers trying out Recycled Fibre Yarns, we hope more go down this route as it can only be good for the planet

First there is a new yarn from James C. Brett - Second Chance DK which is made from 100% Recycled Acrylic in 17 colours. There are 4 pattern leaflets at the moment but we are sure there will be more.

Next we have 4 yarns from ReTwisst - all made from 80% Cotton from recycled waste textile fibres plus 20% recycled Polyester.

They are ReTwisst Chainy Cotton Bobbin (4 colours), ReTwisst Chainy Cotton Cake (10 mixed colours), ReTwisst Barbante (4 colours) and ReTwisst XXLace (4 colours).

They do not have an exact ply so are most useful for household items, we have links on our website to some free patterns and YouTube tutorials, plus more information on the ReTwisst brand.

All of the above Recycled yarns are currently on Pre-order, but if they prove popular we will be looking to get them in stock as soon as we get room

All the rest of the new items are new shades in existing James C. Brett yarns and are also on Pre-order at the moment. Many are showcased in the new pattern leaflets above, but check out the Customer Forum or the New Items page for a full list.

Wendy and Peter Pan yarns

We have the opportunity to get in stock some Wendy and Peter Pan yarns. We would love to know what you think and which ones you would be interested in.

You can view the full range on the Wendy/Peter Pan section on our website but the BUY buttons are disabled as we are not able to supply them on Pre-Order for various reasons.

We would get them in slowly, perhaps one every month or so until we run out of room, so finding out which ones are most popular will be really interesting

We have created a survey where you can vote for your favourites. It includes the likely price and a link to any similar yarns we already stock.

Craft Kits and Gifts

Craft Kits is one of our Sister websites, along with Craft Bits. We include new items from CK in our Newsletters as we know a lot of our customers also shop with CK, who do not have a Newsletter of their own.

We do note new stock on the DKY Forum Craft Kits Section where you can see bigger pictures and direct links.

We are always on the lookout for different crafts for our website, so were very interested when one of our suppliers told us about these new kits.

Funny Friends DIY Animals Modelling Clay Kits - there are 3 to choose from and each one contains 2 items to make.

They all use Foam or Silk Clay, which is a type of lightweight modelling clay which air dries. The kits also contain Poly Balls which you cover with the clay for the base of the items, plus Chenille Stems, Beads and Eyes.
