Sirdar / Sublime
Fashionable excellent quality patterns designed in house by UK designers. Their yarn is great quality without breaking the bank. Patterns and yarn are thoughtfully designed so that each Sirdar yarn of a given weight knits to the same tension (which 99% of the time is a “standard” tension). This means you can substitute yarns easily with no fuss.
The luxury branch of Sirdar is Sublime, with blends including merino wool, silk and cashmere.
One of the best UK knitting magazines. Trendy patterns in a wide variety of yarn weights, techniques and difficulty levels.
