Best yarn packs and yarn bundles
From bargain yarn packs to skein sets and yarn bundles, there's plenty of choice when it comes to boosting your yarn stash!
If you've really got into your crochet or knitting and want to really expand your yarn stash with some discount yarn, then yarn packs are a great option! There are many different types of yarn packs available, from yarn bundles for specific projects, to more general yarn colour packs that come in a range of different colour palettes. They're often work out cheaper for buying yarn in bulk rather than buying individual balls of yarn, and there are also packs that feature smaller amounts of yarns in lots of different colours - which are perfect for if you want to make incredibly colourful projects. We've take a look at some of our favourite yarn packs and yarn bundles, including both big name brands and some yarn bundles from independent yarn producers too!
