Introducing Sweet Roll

Posted on

We have a brand new yarn launching this week, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Say hello to Sweet Roll!

Sweet Roll is a yarn designed to make color easy. The yarn is dyed to make wide stripes, with three colors in each ball. Each ball contains two complete repeats of the stripe sequence, so the transition from one ball to the next is easy! Each color segment is the same length (about 40 yards). When you knit or crochet with Sweet Roll, you’ll get wide, evenly spaced stripes.


For maximum versatility, we’ve made this yarn medium weight. In knitting, Sweet Roll looks great worked anywhere between 4 and 5 stitches to the inch. For crochet, this yarn will work well between 15 and 18 single crochets in 4”.

Sweet Roll is 100% acrylic. That means your finished project will be machine washable and dryable. Sweet Roll is also the go-to choice for anyone who prefers to avoid wool.

 The great shape of the Sweet Roll ball isn’t just about good looks (although we think it looks terrific). The Sweet Roll shape lets you easily pull the end from the center of the ball. The ball sits next to you quietly, without rolling all over the floor every time you pull more yarn. And you can see exactly what colors you’re getting – no surprises! 

Sweet Roll comes in a big, generous ball – 5 oz (140 gr); 245 yds (224 m). One ball is plenty to make a hat, a small scarf, or a pair of slipper socks. Our Loopy Fringe Scarf and our Simply Stripey Shawl each were made with two balls. This is a sweet treat that will easily fit into any budget. You’ll find these great patterns and many more on our website to download for free.

And finally, the colors! We just couldn’t narrow it down, so Sweet Roll is available in 25 colors (not quite as many as the famous ice cream store chain, but close!). Choose from tonal “swirl” colors, or more contrasting “pop” colors, each more appealing than the next. From brights to pastels to neutrals, everyone is sure to find their favorite “flavor” in the Sweet Roll line up.

We know you’ll love Sweet Roll as much as we do. Sweet Roll is available at craft retailers across the country, or purchase through our website and we’ll happily deliver to your door. See all the colors and order yours now at
