Say hello to Paintbox Yarns

Before I get started, let me set the scene. I’m working at home and the doorbell rings. It’s our postman and he hands me a pink bag filled with yarn. I instantly knew it was from LoveKnitting and even said “But I’m not expecting anything”. Poor guy must get that all the time but humoured me by saying “I’m sure you’re going to enjoy it”. Oh yes. What was in that bag was a selection of new kid on the block, Paintbox Yarns, wonderful collection of DK, aran, chunky and cotton yarns.

To say I was shocked is putting it lightly; I had no idea it was coming and the colours were just so beautiful. Even my boyfriend commented on how nice the colours were, a sentiment echoed when I sent a photo to my Mum and sister.

So who are Paintbox Yarns? Exclusive to Love Knitting, they’ve launched with 60 shades in four lines – DK, aran, chunky and cotton. Designed to be “modern, playful and all about colour”, they’ve launched alongside a selection of free knitting and crochet patterns – including this adorable ladybird pattern, plus a variety of items of clothing (if you’re on the lookout for bigger projects).

What’s struck me most about Paintbox Yarns is the collection of shades they’ve launched with; it feels like they’ve nailed it here and I’m excited about this brand and where it’s going and what might be in store. LoveKnitting have also put together a selection of five colour packs, which is where I get to announce something exciting…

It’s giveaway time! I’ve teamed up with LoveKnitting to give you the chance to win both the Fallen Leaves and Winter Frost Simply DK packs – worth over £35 and, more importantly, that’s 20 balls of yarn for you to plan with. All you have to do is head over to my Instagram feed and…

A selection of Paintbox Yarns’ range was sent to me by LoveKnitting, but all opinions and excitement about yarn are my own.

    Hi Leanne,

    I agree that the paintbox yarn colours are totally amazing.

    I am just annoyed that I won’t be able to enter your giveaway as I don’t have Instagram. I know that it’s a great platform but not everyone is on there.

    I just wanted to make you aware that some of your followers will be missing out.

    I think that your colour combinations on your makes are gorgeous and I enjoy your blog escapades.

    Take care Audrey.

    Hi,
    I was wondering if you could by any chance identify the reds in the bottom right corner. I’m trying to pick yarn for Christmas decorations, but can’t decide based on the photos in the shop!

      Hi Fiona, thanks for getting in touch. I assume you’re referring to the top picture? While I don’t know the answer myself, I’d hazard a guess that they are rose red, pillar red and red wine. I hope this helps! Great idea for Christmas decorations xx
