We are super excited to bring you a new monthly special offer through our Yarn of the Month. At the start of each month we will bring you a gorgeous yarn with an extra special discount. We will also have plenty of project samples and ideas to inspire you.
So without further ado, I bring you the yarn of the month for August… Bergere de France Coton 50. This is a fabulous summer yarn in a range of 20 cheerful, fresh colours. It is a 50% cotton / 50% acrylic yarn which knits as a 4ply with 140m per 50g ball.
There is excellent pattern support available through the Bergere pattern books. I’ve knitted a gorgeous baby sundress and hat from Mag 167. Summer Kids. This book contains 42 patterns for children from 0 – 10 many of which feature Coton 50. All this inspiration for just £7!
Coton 50 is perfect for crochet too. My mum took our Beginners Crochet class just before Christmas and has made these gorgeous jazzy squares using this pattern. She’s going to join 9 of them together to make a fab cushion cover.
Or how about this take on a traditional granny square? Pattern here.
Coton 50 normally retails for £3.45 but we are offering you an amazing 20% off throughout August making is just £2.75 a ball.
Unfortunately from Monday August 4th there will be some small price increases across the store due to our suppliers raising their prices. We’ve done our best to keep these increases to an absolute minimum.
