Katia Knitting Kits

Katia 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.

Katia Knitting Kits

Here at Horncastle Hobby House, we take traditional arts and crafts and make sure to bring them into the present day to ensure a contemporary feel to your creations. One great example of how we do this is through providing our customers with the fantastic Katia yarn and wool. Not only will your friends and family love what you produce with this material, but you’re sure to make yourself some great garments with it.

Whilst knitting dates back to over one thousand years ago, we think it’s important to improve and enhance the craft by creating more innovative techniques. By combining new processes with traditional values, we can pass this love of the craft onto younger generations too.

Katia yarn stands out for being an ultra-soft yarn, whilst offering great quality. Colours are often in-line with current trends in fashion, so this is where you get the contemporary feel. This yarn is really easy to use, and suitable for family activities as it is suitable for both adults and children to work with, so you can bond over make your own teddy bears and scarves.

Another great feature of this brand are the Yarn Cakes, which allow you to knit a poncho or blanket from the ball of wool provided. Alternatively, the Katia Spring Rainbow yarns will help you make your own triangular wrap. Featuring a blend of 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. Free patterns are included with these cakes, making it easier than ever to create your own wonderful products.

You can use your imagination to use yarn cakes for garments. You can knit top down garments with yarn cakes and this means you are knitting from the neck down knitting the sleeves and body at the same time so the stripes in the yarn are the same on the whole garment. Many top down patterns can be found on yarn directories such as ravelry.com.
