We were greeted by Annabelle Hill Sales and Marketing Director and
Juliet Bernard of Blue Bear a Strategic and Social Marketing company....who talked us through the next 12 months with Stylecraft. We got to look, feel and try all the new yarns and colours and chat about the crochet/knitting world

As one of Stylecrafts Crochet Designers, I have been working with Batik for a few months now and love it...I hope all the other bloggers and you all, will love it as much as I do.
A beautiful range of 16 colours that blend together fabulously
A 20% Wool 80% Acrylic yarn, beautifully springy that fills the space well. I have designed the Stylecraft Autumn Cal using this yarn and in Special DK another huge favourite with lots of people, as the second option.
