With knitters and crocheters alike, the British TV show Downton Abbey is about to get a lot more popular. Now there's a yarn line for it!



Premier Yarns is constantly coming out with new and exciting yarn, and you're going to love their latest. The Downton Abbey Collection is a luscious yarn line that has names that play off the characters in the TV show. Each character has his or her own skein of yarn named after them:

Branson: Unlike the other yarns in the Downton Abbey Yarn Collection, Branson is a bulky weight yarn that is 80% acrylic and 20% wool. Also unlike the others, you can machine wash this yarn on the gentle cycle and tumble dry it on low. The colorways are earth-toned allowing you to mix and match and still have a beautiful crochet pattern.

Matthew: This yarn is plush and soft, which is great for a worsted weight yarn. There are specks of different colors dispersed throughout the skein, giving it great character. Matthew is 21% wool, 75% acrylic, and 4% viscose. I unfortunately, cannot wear anything wool, but this yarn seems softer than most.

Lady Mary: This yarn is one of my favorites by looks alone. It's 95% acrylic and 5% glitter, giving it just the right amount of sparkle. Lady Mary is a light weight yarn that must be hand washed and laid flat to dry. It comes in 8 colors including Sapphire Sparkle, Coral Shine, Silver Frost, and Lily Ice.

Lady Sybil: Made of 10% Angora Effect, 80% acrylic, and 10% Mohair, this yarn surprisingly is pretty soft. Lady Sybil is a fine weight yarn that must also be hand washed to keep its fabulous appearance. Because Sybil is "the sweetest spirit", it's no wonder this yarn is super soft. This line comes in 8 colors including Stone Blue, Mulled Grape, Pearl Pink, and Jade Green.

Each of the yarns within this collection can be mixed and matched giving your crochet pattern a unique look. From 8 colors within each yarn line to choose from, you're sure to find a combination you absolutely love. No matter if you've been a Downton Abbey fan since the first episode or you're just jumping on board the very last season, you will appreciate the colors and textures of each yarn line within the collection. Even if you haven't seen a single episode, you'll want to get your hands on this yarn. With the different yarn weights, you will love experiementing to make the perfect crochet afghan.

Ooh they all sound great but I think Lady Mary will be my favorite

I loved this show - how good is that - now I get to knit with yarn that I know I'll love as much as the tv show! Really attractive colors.
