Product description

Put the kettle on and snuggle down to an evening knitting session during a cold and windy winters evening with the fantastic Women’s Institute Soft and Smooth Purple Yarn. Here at Hobbycraft we have come together with The Women’s Institute to develop a fantastic range of yarn over the mutual passion and shared desire to provide people with the opportunity to build new skills that we have! This super soft range has been created to offer an anti-pill fibre. The structure and spinning of these fibres mean that the garment surface will continue to look fresh and new even after prolonged usage.

Create a wonderfully cosy cardigan, toasty warm scarf or even playful toys and gifts plus much more for an unbelievably gentle knit! As well as winter clothing, accessories and toys this yarn is perfect for baby clothing for smooth, comfortable and warm garments. With up to 400 grams of comfy wear to weave with, enjoy up to 660 metres of knitting material, ideal for every project in mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aran soft and smooth I am on my 5th baby shawl this year and wanted a colour a bit different to cream, blue or pink. It is the same cuddly, soft wool and crochets beautifully with the purple making it just a little more special. 01 December 2015
