New Yarns by Katia
Bora Bora. 100% cotton available in 5 colours, but in 2 different colour cycles. So you’ll obtain surprising printed effects when you alternate short cycle balls of yarn with long cycle balls of yarn.
Capri Plus. The cheerful multicolour version of Capri, one of our best loved mercerised basic cotton yarns, has arrived.
Malibu Plus. Our mottle effect yarn Katia Malibu has evolved: on the one hand we have; a base of both intense and undyed pastel colours, and on the other hand; a white tape yarn speckled with multicoloured flecks.
Special Tape Yarns
Hawaii. A novel light weight tape yarn with a t.shirt appearance for making exclusive garments. A very easy yarn to work with using large needle sizes and only 3 balls are needed to make a fresh simple girl’s top.
Maui. 100% cotton yarn with an irregular thickness in 7 vibrant multicolour tones. A perfect yarn for making colourful tops for this spring.
Mini Washi. This is the finest and most summery tape yarn available from the Washi family which is suitable for making home accessories and all types of garments. For example, with only 2 balls of Mini Washi you can make a youthful woman’s top.
Using only one ball of yarn
Funny Rainbow. Your experience whilst knitting or crocheting with our yarns is very important to us. Therefore, we hope that working with these balls of yarn KNOT-FREE will make you very happy this spring. Besides a shawl, using only one ball of Funny Rainbow you can make a top, a waistcoat or a scarf in a surprising explosion of colour.
Sunset. Prepared to shine? Then why not do it using this cotton cake yarn with authentic glass beads. Make an elegant neckerchief scarf from only one ball of yarn and dazzle throughout the summer nights.
Soleil. 200 grams of a light voluminous yarn with a perfect twist which makes it so easy to knit or crochet into a colourful shawl.
Montecarlo. Does this fancy yarn seem familiar to you? We’ll tell you a secret: you’ve probably seen it in the window displays of some well known brands, designer’s collections and in fashion magazines.
Recycled. A yarn for knitters and crocheters committed to the environment. On the one hand we have; organic cotton cultivated without pesticides, and on the other hand; a recycled polyester made from discarded plastic bottles.
Tencel-Cotton. Do you know what Tencel is? It’s Lyocell, a biodegradable fibre made using an ecologically sustainable process where 99% of the materials used are recycled.
Concept by Katia
Cotton-Alpaca. A blend of Made in Peru materials: Alpaca and Tanguis Cotton. This cotton comes from Pisco and is notable for being very resistant and having particularly long fibres. The yarn is spongy and suitable for working with using large size needles and hooks.
Polynesia. 100% natural slub yarn that combines the softness of cotton, the simplicity of linen and the elegance of viscose.
