Introducing Paintbox Yarns – color, value, and durability

Brand new, and exclusively available at, these 4 new amazing lines from Paintbox Yarns come in 60 beautiful colors. Designed with value, quality and durability in mind, these modern colors are sure to inject some fun into your designs!

Paintbox Simply Chunky

Four New Lines!

Simply DK, Aran and Chunky Acrylic

We’re so excited to share these new yarn lines with you, as we know you’ll love the colors as much as we do. Paintbox has released both cotton and acrylic yarns, giving crocheters an array of options. In order to produce a high-quality, durable yarn that is also a great value, Paintbox created three lines using acrylic fibre in a range of weights. With 60 colors to choose from, you can build your own color palettes to match whatever project your working on. The three new acrylic lines are: Acrylic Simply DK, Simply Aran and Simply Chunky.

Because many of our crocheters love working with cotton, Paintbox has also introduced a line called Simply Cotton DK, which comes in 56 different shades.

So beyond the great colors, why do we think these new lines are a great fit for our makers? Firstly, they’re affordable, making them ideal for crocheters on a budget. They are also flexible and easy to work with so that both beginners and longtime makers will enjoy crocheting with them. Lastly, all of the Paintbox yarns are durable and reliable, ensuring your projects live long lives!


We know how important a good value is, so Paintbox patterns are, and always will be completely free. To help you get started, there are four free patterns available immediately on, with more to come soon! There will be a mix of patterns for adults and children, and you can refresh your favorites by choosing a different palette each time.

LoveCrochet color packs – pick your palette

We are in love with the fantastic range of colors available from Paintbox Yarns, and we have bundled some great color packs together for you to choose from. To celebrate the launch of this exciting new brand, Kate and Jenni from the LoveCrochet team have picked their favorite color combinations to inspire you and your next project!

Kate’s Picks:

“I love the aqua tones paired with the rich purples and dark pinks. I think the rich jewel tones would look beautiful as a throw or shawl. I love an ombre effect so I’d probably try and create that with these shades, going from the ocean tones through to the neutral beige colors to really make the colors pop!”

Jenni’s Picks:

“There is no denying that I love a pastel palette, and I couldn’t resist the range of pastel pinks the line has to offer! I’ve mixed them with some other pastel hues like Duck Egg Blue (who doesn’t love Duck Egg!) and Banana Cream. This palette of color together would make for a beautiful baby blanket.”
