MICHELLEMillaMia Naturally Soft Aran

MillaMia Naturally Soft Aran is a go-to for me – it’s buttery soft and super cozy. The perfect merino option for winter hats, even for babies. And the color range is vibrant and fun, adding lots of cheer to garments for winter. And it’s even super practical as it’s machine washable!

JENNI: Cascade 220

What can I say about Cascade 220? A LOT. It’s incredibly soft and warm I was honestly shocked at how many shades it comes in. I really was spoilt for choice when picking shades for the blanket project I decided to crochet it in. It would be perfect for making this project:

EMMA: Rowan Handknit Cotton

Rowan Handknit Cotton comes in gorgeous blue shades that are my favourite to work with! Being 100% cotton, it means it’s the perfect option for me to crochet away for my baby niece – Cloud and Aubergine will be the perfect match for her Christmas present!

SIÂN: Sugar Bush Yarns Bold 


What a squishy gorgeous merino wool yarn! I fell in love with this yarn because of the blues and greens, and merino wool is so lovely next to the skin. This yarn has a lot of loft, which makes it so comfortable in the hands to knit, and it’s is a yarn that’s ideal for any aran weight pattern.

NINA: Katia Air Alpaca

Don’t you just want to snuggle up in Katia Air Alpaca? This superfine Alpaca blend yarn is so soft while hard wearing and comes in some amazing colours. My favourite shades for this winter are ‘rust’ and ‘dark beige’. 

NATALIE: DMC Natura Medium

Nothing beats a 100% cotton yarn for the softest, baby-friendly projects, and DMC Natura Medium is definitely my fave! With the dreamiest range of ice cream pastels, I could sit and crochet baby blankets all day with this!

CHLOE: West Yorkshire Spinners Bluefaced Leicester Solids Aran

I love West Yorkshire Spinners yarns because they are ‘reared, sheared and spun’ locally – and Blue Faced Leicester yarns are so nice to use and wear! I love the nice firm twist in this yarn and it comes in truly classic colours. This is a yarn for everyday blankets that won’t let you down!

ERIC: Wool and the Gang Shiny Happy Cotton

This is the such a soft aran cotton yarn! The colours are really modern, bright and zingy. It’s perfect if you are allergic to animal fibres like me, you will love the fact that you have found a yarn that is so soft and comfy to wear.



I love the GGH range – it’s full of affordable, great quality yarns, in modern colour ways! GGH Flow is a lovely example of air blown yarns, it’s super soft and light to wear – great for layers and so cosy!
