In addition to that excitement we have had lots and lots of lovely deliveries, more yarn, magazines, needles….


I am thrilled to be expanding our yarn collection once again this week!

Tangled Yarns would like to welcome aboard SweetGeorgia Yarns….

SweetGeorgia Yarns is an artisan yarn company that makes exquisite hand-dyed yarns in stunningly saturated colours.

To launch SweetGeorgia we have selected three very special bases –

CashSilk Lace

45% cashmere, 55% silk
400 yards per 50g skein


Delicate, soft and ever so slightly glossy, this yarn is 2-ply / lace weight.
A little goes a really, really long way.

Shattered Sun Shawl by Felicia Lo {knit}

Two-Tone Crochet Cowl by Purl Soho {crochet}

Superwash DK

100% superwash merino wool
256 yards per 115g skein


Superwash DK is a 100% superwash merino, 3-ply yarn that knits up to a true 22 sts per 4″ gauge. Perfect for thick handknit socks or finer-gauge sweater, this hardworking yarn will suit a wide range of projects.

Even though it is machine-washable, we recommend never machine-drying.
Handknits will hold up best if you hand wash and lay flat to dry.

Tough Love Sock is SweetGerogias most popular and best-selling sock yarn.
Spun from 80% superwash and supersoft fine merino and 20% nylon, this 3-ply yarn is so versatile
— knit it firmly for hard wearing socks, knit it loosely for drapey shawls.

Debbie Bliss

Crochet is certainly hot right now, our Learn To Crochet Courses are repeatedly booking out and we are seeing crochet pop up everywhere.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new Crochet Living book by Debbie Bliss and re-stocking our previously sold out Simply Crochet!

Crochet Living





Simply Crochet





It looks like I under estimated just how much you would all love our new SchopellWool range! We sold out of almost every colour in several of the yarns including the Crazy Zauberball range.

Luckily I had another order in transit and it has arrived in time for the weekend.

The first issue of Reloved sold out in record time….the wait is finally over – the second issue is here!

Another extremely popular publication, Simply Crochet is back with Issue 7.


The latest issue includes 34 patterns including a cute tunic, daisy hairband, patch pockets, bears, bunting & blankets.





We often get requests for shorter double point needles, especially for those just mastering the technique. With this in mind we have just added the 10cm range of Symfonie Double Point Needles.
(2.00mm – 4.00mm)


Mollie Makes


Mollie Makes Issue 29 has hit the shelves!


Crochet ice cream cones, stitch felt lollies and sew your own topsy turvy doll.

Hark back to the old days! When playing 8-bit arcade games and deciding between ice lollies or scoops of ice cream were top priority.




The Simple Things


The sublimely beautiful The Simple Things Issue 12 is here, hot off the presses.


Full of food, interiors, gardening, travel and well being.

If your winter weekend needs a pick-me-up, this is sure to do it.



Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns

It is always fun to ‘Knit – A – Long’ with a friend and the lovely Sue and Terri have been working away on a Mystery Shawl KAL.

This is Terri’s finished Germinate by Kirsten Kapur.

Terri has used our Malabrigo Sock in Playa, Turner and Lettuce.



Sue chose to go with a slightly heavier weight and used our Malabrigo Arroyo in English Rose, Aguas and Purpuras.



Anita had a much loved skein of Malabrigo Sock in Light Of Love in her stash. Her little Miss A discovered it and it was love at first sight!

A single skein wasn’t enough for something so the solution was of course…stripes! Miss A was asked what other colour she would like and she chose this adorable yellow Cascade Heritage Silk.

The pattern is Gathering Stipes by Veera Valimaki, finished off perfectly with three of our sweet little buttons.



Derrin has whipped up a couple of my Little Set of Stripes hats this week using a combination of our Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and Cascade 220 Superwash Sport…too sweet!


I was just a little smitten with the two finished Edgewood‘s last week that I quickly cast on over the weekend and have been living in it all week!

Soooooo soft and squishy.

Edgewood by Leah McGlone in our Fibre Company Organik – Deed Sea, Cumulus, Atoll, Lichen.

My only issue now is that I want one in several different colour combinations!


My Miss J’s school fete is on later this month and each year I like to donate some kits to the craft stall.

For this years kits I have designed a squishy little garter stitch cowl for the budding knitter.


Petite Garter Cowl is a great first project to knit with your eager new knitter or simply for you to whip up to keep your little people warm.

Designed to fit a range of ages from approximately 4yrs old to 8yrs and is easily modified to make it larger for the teens or young adults.

The pattern is now available on Ravelry or you can pick up your copy in store with a ball of Cascade 220 Superwash Worsted.
