How to find products

    There are two main products on our site - a single product and a product range (a number of single products grouped together). And there are a number of ways to find them!

  1. Along the top of the home page there are categories where yarns are split into their respective category. Yarns will appear in more than one category.
    • Hover over the main category i.e. "Yarns Made From" and you will see further sub-categories like "cotton yarns", "linen yarns", etc. Or you can click on this main category to see the full list of sub-categories
    • Clicking on one of these sub-categories will display all yarns made from your choice.
    • The next page will show product ranges and single products - the ranges will show all available (in stock) colours in small swatch images under the main image.
    • You can view the product in full, quick view or choose a colour and add direct to basket from here.
    • Some ranges will have more colours in the range, but may not be displaying them as they are out of stock. To see all range colours regardless of their stock status, see "in and out of stock products" below

  2. If you know the name of the product you are looking for, go to the top right of any page and click on "SEARCH". You can enter the name of the product and see all matching items.

  3. If you're not sure of the product or would like to see a more detailed search, please use "advanced search" from the "site help" menu or from the link at the bottom left of any page
    • Here you can choose one or many choices to search for yarn;
    • For example choosing "white" form "Search Colour" and clicking search at the bottom of the page, will show you all yarns that are white in colour.
    • You can also combine searches for fewer yarns. Remember the fewer choices the more yarns!
