Bernat Pop yarn knitted triangle shawl

Bernat Pop! and Bernat Blanket Big – new yarns

3rd August 2017



There’s big news from Bernat in the form of Bernat Blanket Big and Bernat Pop!, two of the hottest yarns to hit the UK.

Bernat Pop! is a 100% acrylic self-striping yarn that’s set to become an absolute favourite with knitters and crocheters alike. It incorporates five distinct shades and is perfect for creating soft, hard wearing striped projects without having to weave in any tiresome ends, making it quick and easy to complete projects with a real pop of colour.

This Aran weight yarn is also machine wash and dryable, so it’s easy to clean and care for. It works up into great stripy effects, like this shawl.

And following on from the immense success of Bernat Blanket is Bernat Blanket Big. This new ultra-thick gauge enables you to make a big impact with this larger than life yarn.

It boasts the same super soft, super cosy chenille-style feel that you know and love with Bernat Blanket. It’s just bigger and bolder for that “big stitch look”. Bernat Blanket Big is perfect for blankets, rugs, crafting and home décor projects, like this footstool. It stitches up really quickly on larger gauge needles, and it’s also great for arm knitting.
