Three Bears Yarn Review; Grey Black Marl Cotton DK Trial Yarn

I recently had the chance to try some new trial yarn from Three Bears Yarn and I was really excited about this one, as it was Marl Cotton and this kind of yarn is not easy to find especially in the UK. So I couldn’t wait to use it and see what it was like 🙂 and when I saw it I just knew this would be a perfect yarn to make something for my husband!

Three Bears Yarn Review; Lilac (Purple Passion) 4ply Yarn Sample

Firstly I would like to apologise for how long it has taken me to post up my last review of the samples I received from Three Bears Yarn back in September, unfortunately my health started to get worse at the end of the month and I came down with the Flu and this was shortly after I had just finished testing their 4ply yarn sample. I am here now though and ready to share my review with you and for those that have been following along with the other reviews I did of my sample yarns thank you for your patience and I hope you’ll enjoy reading this one too.

Three Bears Yarn are a new British company, based in Lancashire and  launched their range of cotton yarns on the 1st of October. I received a sample of each of their yarns in the beginning of September and throughout September I was busy working on their samples and reviewing them which I hope you’ve enjoyed reading, and even found helpful. I have really been enjoying trying their yarns, especially as being a vegan cotton is my most used yarn fibre. It’s lovely to find a new British company that is offering cotton yarns :-) and I love that I now have even more yarn options!

Three Bears Yarn Review; Grey Blue (Smoky Green) DK Chenille Yarn Sample

For those of you who saw my last post you’ll know that I am currently testing and reviewing some yarn samples from Three Bears Yarn, if you haven’t seen this post and would like to you can do so here. Today I am here to review another of their yarn samples that they sent me, from their cotton DK Chenille range.

Just a quick re-cap for those that don’t know; a few weeks ago a new British company called Three Bears Yarn sent me some yarn samples to try. They sent me a sample of each of their yarns that they’ll be launching on the 1st of October which are 4ply, DK, Aran and DK Chenille. They are based in Lancashire and all their yarns are cotton, as this is one of the main yarn fibres I use being vegan I was very excited when I heard about them. I was delighted when I was given a chance to sample their yarn and tell you all about it 🙂 and that’s why I am here today.
