yarn bowl

Sort out your yarn stash!

Rainy afternoons are the perfect excuse to get your yarn collection under control!

25th January 2016
You might be bored of dull and dreary winter days by now, but a rainy afternoon cooped up indoors is the perfect time to get your stash in order!

Once you've sorted out what you want to keep and rediscovered odds and ends you'd forgotten you'd had, the fun can begin! There are plenty of ways to display your skeins and keep your balls safe, neat and tidy – you might even brighten up your craft corner at the same time! Here are a few of our favourite ideas!
