Aran and Worsted

If you’re looking for a strong, medium-weight yarn for your knitting project, aran yarn could be the one for you. Aran yarn, otherwise known as “worsted yarn”, offers a stronger and more rigid finish than finer options, such as DK yarn.

The great thing about aran yarn is that it is extremely versatile. With its medium weight thickness, you can make marvellous wool blankets, sweaters, scarves, hats and gloves for colder climates using aran yarn. Think of it as a great all-purpose yarn for knitting that you can use for a whole variety of projects.


We currently stock aran yarn in a variety of textures from Drops Design, including Drops Air, Drops Alpaca Bouclé, Drops Melody and Drops Big Merino. Choose the right wool for you, place your order and we’ll dispatch the same day to have your aran yarn with you as soon as possible.
