Aran weight yarn is a type of medium-weight acrylic, Wool/acrylic mixor 100% wool yarn which is slightly heavier than worsted yarn. Its extra weight makes it ideal for knitting thicker items such as blankets, jumpers and other winter items of clothing and accessories. Here at Horncastle Hobby House we are delighted to stock Aran weight yarn to keep you knitting in the winter months.
We stock Woolcraft’s ‘blanket-in-a-ball’ Aran yarn which is fantastic for knitting blankets ready for a newborn child. These are available in both blue and pink mix colours. We also offer Aran with wool from brands such as Woolcraft, Robin and Wendy. These are all roughly 75% acrylic and 25% wool and can be bought in a huge variety of different colours from Atlantic blue and cardinal to cream and thistle. You require 2 balls of 400g to make an average adult jumper meaning a lovely warm jumper can be made for less than £20.
All of our Aran weight yarns are ideal for knitting on a 4.5mm needle although some variants are suitable for knitting on smaller needles such as 3.75mm.
