Chunky 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.

Perhaps if you have never used chunky yarns before, you might ask the question – what sort of projects could I make using chunky yarns? You will find that chunky yarns are so versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes. Here we have listed just a few suggestions to provide you with inspiration on how to use your chunky yarns.
Chunky yarns are perfect for knitting really warm and cosy blankets. On a cold winter’s night, a blanket made out of chunky yarns is the perfect option to drive the cold away. You could even use your chunky yarns to knit your blanket twice as large as you might normally, so that you can snuggle under it with a loved one and get even more cosy. Imagine sitting under your blanket, with a cup of steaming hot chocolate, watching your favourite programme on tv. You will be so pleased with how you have used the chunky yarns that you have purchased.
Another use for chunky yarns is to make slippers. You are sure to be amazed at how comfortable your feet feel when you place them in a pair of slippers made with chunky yarns. You might want to stock up on your stash of chunky yarns though, because when your friends and family members see your beautiful slippers, they are certain to want you to make them a pair too.
A third use of chunky yarns is to make jumpers and cardigans. Using chunky yarns in a project like this creates beautiful texture that not only looks fantastic, but you will find that it feels great too. Chunky yarns are also practical for knits you will use during autumn and winter as they will keep you warm during the colder months. For this reason, chunky yarns can also be used for scarves and hats. The majority of the chunky yarns that Horncastle Hobby House stock are also machine washable, so they are perfect for using in projects that you or your family and friends will wear.
As you can see, chunky yarns are suitable for a whole range of projects. Horncastle Hobby House supplies chunky yarns in a variety of different textures and colours, from softer pastel shades to brighter colours. So whatever project you end up choosing to make, they are sure to have the chunky yarns that you require.
