Hey! there is a brand new yarn on the block!!! Essentials DK is a budget friendly, soft, squishable (official crochet and knit term) yarn that comes in 19 irresistible shades on the Deramores website, ranging from browns to pinks, purples to blues.  Deramores wanted to create a new yarn so they can cater for all budgets, without compromising on the quality.  It is an 100% Acrylic, easy care yarn that will be perfect for your next project, at just £1.75 per ball, trust me you won’t be disappointed.

What can you make?

This yarn is perfect for any crochet or knit project that you can possibly think of!

From blankets and cushions, to garments and homeware or even toys and accessories.  With plenty of new projects using this yarn being added to the Deramores website each day I’m sure you’ll find something to suit your needs.  As this yarn is the ever popular DK weight, any pattern using DK yarn will also be perfect, the possibilities are endless.



In my swatch I have sampled a classic granny square, which uses treble crochet (double crochet – US).  I used the recommended 4mm hook and found the yarn enjoyable to work with, it didn’t split whilst I was using it or squeak against my hook.  It’s soft to the touch and has great stich definition on my granny square swatch.


Final thoughts

This yarn is perfect if you are on a tighter budget, but still want a lovely finished result.

The colour range available, complement each other perfectly so I’m sure you won’t have a problem choosing a pretty combination for your project.
