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.

Whether you’re making scarves, cardigans, babywear, home décor or accessories, double knit yarn is always a great choice due to its versatility. It is a mid-weight wool, so you could say it offers the best of both worlds; it’s not too big, not too small, but just right.
In order to produce an amazing knitted piece, you need to begin with the best tools for the task in hand. We stock only the best brands of double-knit wool, including Woolcraft, Peter Pan and King Cole. We select these brands not only for their high-quality wool, but also for their exciting colours available. By offering our customers such a wide variety of double knitting wools, you can play with different colour palettes and patterns and really use your imagination.
The recommended needles for use with double knit yarn is between 3.25mm – 4mm, but this will also depend on your personal tension when knitting.
