Baby Yarns

At Horncastle Hobby House, we have had over ten years’ worth of experience supplying yarns for crochet, knitting, and needle felting. We pride ourselves on stocking a wide variety of traditional crafts products, including those for children.

Double knitting yarn is available from Woolcraft , Peter Pan, and King Cole , which is ideal for any double knitting pattern. Baby yarn is soft, gentle, washable, and therefore perfect for creations made for the little ones. It comes in neutral colours, as well as bright, fun ones. Katia Yarn Cakes are also very soft and light, with unique gradations of colour.

For a thicker yarn, you might opt for Aran weight yarn, or our range of chunky yarns. On the other end of the scale, we have sock yarn, which is 4 ply, as you would expect for making everyday socks with a wool/nylon content. We stock a large range of knitting and crochet patterns for all ages along with soft toy patterns and knitting needles, bags in fact anything you need to get started.

We also have cotton yarns especially for crochet, as well as supplies for needlecraft, for everyday sewing and embroidery. 

Based in Lincolnshire, we are pleased to keep the tradition of these crafts alive in the modern age. We know the joy that can come from creating your own unique items for yourself, as well as friends and family.

When producing baby clothes, booties or hats, what is the advantage of using baby yarns? The baby yarns that are stocked at Horncastle Hobby House are produced using a gentle wool. Another advantage of all the baby yarns you will find at Horncastle Hobby House is that they are machine washable. This is ideal as you do not need to worry about any beautiful knits that you create being ruined the first time they are worn, and every parent knows that machine washable items are essential with a young child or baby. Another important requirement for baby yarns is that they are soft on your baby’s skin. The baby yarns that are stocked at Horncastle Hobby House will allow you to create items that are both light weight and breathable.
Whether you are making something for your own baby or for friends or family, using baby yarns in your projects is vital to ensure that you do not irritate a baby’s sensitive skin. A new parent does not need the extra worry of wondering whether the items their baby is wearing will be gentle on their skin or not.
One question you might ask is why is it that a baby has more sensitive skin than adults? One reason is that the skin barrier of a new baby is up to 30% thinner than that of adults. For this reason, a baby will lose moisture quicker from their skin, meaning it is more prone to dryness and irritation. A baby has highly delicate skin which is very vulnerable, and therefore it is very important that it is treated with care. Horncastle Hobby House believe that as a baby has such highly sensitive skin, only the best quality baby yarns should be used when creating baby blankets, clothes or booties. For this reason, they only stock trusted brands of baby yarns such as Woolcraft, King Cole, and Peter Pan. Available in a variety of different colours from pastel shades to brighter colours and mixes, you will find baby yarns suitable for any project.
