Purple Yarn

Feeling the need to express your artistic and spiritual side? Then let purple yarn do the talking for you. Some colors simply demand to be noticed (it's no accident purple has long been associated with all things regal and noble!) and this one pushes its way to the front of the queue.

As a mix of blue and red, purple offers an exciting array of 'cool' and 'warm' tones. If your knitting or crochet project demands a vibrant shade, try amethyst. Perhaps you prefer deeper, moodier shades, in which case opt for eggplant or plum. Lilac and lavender tones can add a lighter side to your project. Our range of purple yarns constantly evolves to ensure you have the most current shades at your fingertips.

Each of the many brands in our collection - such as Rowan, DROPS, Regia and Manos Del Uruguay - offer a satisfying range of fibers and weights to accommodate all manner of crafting projects. And if it's inspiration you're after, then check out our knitting patterns which can be filtered by skill level and project type.

Get crafty with purple yarn  

Whatever your tastes, crafting with purple yarn can satisfy your all your knitting and crochet projects. Whether you yearn to wrap up in a cozy blanket or rock a funky sweater, or hat the possibilities are endless.

Purple works well for self-colored items; it also looks striking with white, gray, and black. For a truly bold contrast, try a yellow - they may be opposites on the color wheel yet they can work together to become the best of friends!
