It’s just about summer time here in Bristol.  It’s hot and humid during the day but the evenings are still slightly cool.  If you have a wee one, it’s still nice to cover their sweet, little heads on those cool nights by the fire pit or during a walk on the famous boardwalks of the Jersey shore.  Plymouth Yarn has them covered!  Pattern F597, made using Sesia Bimbo,  a soft cotton rolled brim hat is just perfect for those nights.  It’s available in 6 beautiful, baby friendly shades.  We want to celebrate this yarn and the season by sharing the pattern and giving 5 lucky winners the yarn they need to make it!  The hat is available in sizes preemie to 6 months.  To be eligible to win, comment on our blog, or share the post on facebook, retweet and tag us on twitter, or you can even pin this post on pinterest.   Winners will be chosen at random on or about May 26th 2015.

Win What You Really Wanted For Mother’s Day

Monday, May 11th, 2015

My 9 year old son was given the task of picking out my Mother’s Day gift all by himself with his very own money this year, for the first time.  I have to say, he did very well.  I received an array of nail polishes in every shade of blue (my favorite color) imaginable and a beautiful orchid.  He’s growing into a sweet young man, that’s for sure.  I adore and treasure all of the homemade picture frames, pipe cleaner flowers and finger painted works of art from the past years but I think the fact that he really put thought into my gift that made it so very special to me.  I honestly thought I’d end up with a Lego set!

For three lucky ladies out there, we have the gift you really wanted! All you have to do is win it! This beautiful Bio Sesia 5  CROCHET cardigan kit, pattern 2804, comes in so many sizes it will fit and flatter just about every mom.  The luxurious, 100% organic cotton Bio Sesia 5 is super soft with a beautiful drape.  It will be your spring/summer/fall go-to coverup for that night around the fire pit with mommy drinks after the kiddos are asleep!

Would you like a chance to win this kit? Just comment on our blog with the best or “it’s the thought that counts” gift you’ve ever received for Mother’s Day.  Not a mom? You can play too! Tell us the best or worst gift you ever gave your mom/teacher/Grandmom/Aunt.

Colors will vary.  Winner chosen at random on or about May 15th 2015.

New Fall PlymouthYarns for Winter 2014/15 and a GIVE AWAY!!

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Wow! Wait until you see this line-up! We have been so busy working on our new line of yarns this year. And we found so many that we had trouble keeping it down to a decent # of yarns.

We have 15 all said and done. I KNOW!!! 15!!!

Here is a description of these yarns for you to read about. NEXT I would like for you to check them out on Ravelry,  tell us your favorite new yarn and what it inspires you to make.

We will select a winner by random draw-so enter often if you like!

Essex: Chunky weight 100% wool wrapped in a charcoal or black thread in a fascinating subtle stripe.  Stitches melt together to create a wonderfully muted, but colorful, substantial fabric. This yarn is great for chunky weight accessories that you’d like to have a pop of color. 

Gina Chunky: We developed a chunky weight version of one of our favorite and best-selling yarns, Gina. Gina Chunky is a single-ply roving in bright, cheerful self-striping colors. This 100% wool will make cozy winter accessories in a snap. Charmingly fresh and bright in a quick to knit gauge.

Homestead: A true Aran! Homestead is a classic 3-ply wool with a design oriented color range. We love this yarn for many reasons. Surprisingly soft yet rustic, homestead will wear well and be a knitters favorite.   

Cashmere Passion: Cashmere never felt so good! In fact, we think this 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere blend feels better than most 100% Cashmere yarns (without the price tag, too!). Cashmere passion knits up at a light worsted gauge. The soft halo produced from the fabric yearns to be knit in a luxury accessory or classic knit. A truly cuddly yarn.

Cashmere: We have taken our Royal Cashmere to the next level. It is the same high quality Italian 100% cashmere in a new ball put-up. Best of all we have redefined the entire color palette. 10 colors ranging from classic to fun! Check it out. This is for that very special project-hopefully for yourself! 

Sophia Tweed: A multi colored binding thread twines around thick and thin Acrylic and Wool. Sophia Tweed is like a party in a ball. Stockinette and garter knits are soft and nearly weightless. We love this one for women’s garments and accessories in easy to knit patterns.

Spago: A light-as-a-feather novelty yarn with a bulky gauge. Spago self-stripes, and will knit well in simple stitches. Spago is ultra-textured and very fast to knit with.

Kid Gloss and Kid Gloss Hand Dyed:  We tested many Silk/Mohair blends to bring to you the finest of the lot. Kid Gloss is 72% Super Kid Mohair and 28% Mulberry Silk. Accept no substitutions! You need to knit this yarn to know it is the best! The color palette is very inspirational for mixing together yarns, for either double or single stranded projects.

Stella Jacq: We are so excited about this self-patterning worsted. If you are familiar with our Knitcol yarn, you will love its big sister, Stella Jacq. Jacq is taken from the word jacquard, which is a textile term for intricate patterning. 100% Machine washable wool. Exciting and stunning shades bring unexpected results. Suitable for babies, kids, and adventurous adults.

Baby Alpaca Cherish: 50% Acrylic and 50% Alpaca blended together to create the best of both worlds. A versatile DK weight, Baby Alpaca Cherish is a great yarn for the family. The alpaca lends its softness and drape, while the acrylic lends its wash-ability.  Stitch patterns and color-work alike work well with this new yarn.

Rekor Mini: This is a fun crafting packet of little balls of 10 yards each, in great color ranges. Bust out the imagination for these: duplicate stitch, granny-style square crochet, jewelry, etc.  Check out our free pattern booklets to get you started F557 and F558. 

Inspire and Impulse:  Stock up on these kits for holiday shoppers. 2 different yarns packaged with a pom-pom. And the ball band has the pattern inside for cute hats. 

Scozia: Brought to you from Adriafil, this tweed blend of wool, viscose and nylon has a great hand and a rustic outcome. Chunky for fast knitting, but a light weight finished garment.

Riflessi: Also from Adriafil, this 4 to the inch blend of wool, acrylic and nylon has a metallic thread braided into the chainette structure-subtle but very effective.
