Chunky Yarns

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.

Stocking up on your knitting supplies? Cosy and soft, chunky yarn is a diverse wool that is suitable for all kinds of knitting projects. Chunky wool provides a luxurious texture that is great at keeping you warm, making it perfect for creating clothing items such as jumpers, cardigans and scarves as well as cuddly toys for children. It is also great if you are practising a more complicated pattern such as a cable stitch because it will add definition to your work!

Chunky yarn is best used with 6 to 8 mm needles, depending on your own knitting tension. Most of the wool that we stock is also machine washable, making all your final products safe to wear.

At Horncastle Hobby House, our aim is to keep our customers inspired by stocking high quality wool and materials for all kinds of other crafts too. Whatever your next crafting project is, we’re sure to have the supplies for it, so feel free to let your imagination run wild!

We offer our soft chunky yarn in a range of textures and colours so that you are never out of options. From bright and bold patterns to softer, pastel shades, we have wool to suit every preference.
