Whether you’re planning to deliver a handmade knitted gift or sending a project kit in the post with love to that special person in your life, we have plenty of great ideas to bring a smile to their face this Father’s Day.
You may have already spotted that some of our product pages show female models wearing a selection of gorgeous, knitted garments, but did you know that many of these items are unisex. Some of our patterns include instructions for a range of chest sizes and will work very well for menswear.
The Blacker Yarns Fishermen Rib Sweater and Traditional Guernsey are timeless classics that can be worn all year round, whatever the weather or occasion. Reminiscent of the clothing worn by the fishermen of the past, these attractive, warm and practical knitted garments carry an air of sophistication and a gentle nod to being beside the sea, regardless of where they are worn.
Socks, and especially personalised and handmade ones, are always a welcome gift whatever the occasion. The Unisex Chunky Boot Sock included in a beautifully presented project kit is the perfect gift for someone who loves to build up their sock collection. Available in sizes: Medium 5-8 UK, we have included some of our lovely Limited Edition and Rare Aran wool such as Devon Closewool (supplied in 50g balls), so that you can create a cosy and durable pair, suitable as walking boot socks or for lounging.
To create The Cable Panel Unisex Pullover use our Pure Blended Ryeland DK. The pullover is knitted in the round from the bottom up with most of the pullover knitted in stocking stitch with a simple cable panel in the centre front. The project kit includes the required amount of yarn in your chosen shade to fit chest sizes 30-36/38-46/48-52/54-56in.
If your Dad is practical and creative and loves to make things, he may enjoy turning his hand to a spot of knitting or crocheting in his spare time, so why not send him a Blacker Yarns gift voucher so that he can choose from a range of yarns and project kits on our website.
For someone who uses their mobile phone for pleasure or business, how about a knitted phone cover to keep it safe when carrying it around. Our Pure Romney Guernsey yarn is included in the Guernsey Fingerless Mitt and Phone Cover Project Kit. The fingerless mitts with an attractive anchor emblem will be a welcome accessory for those who like to keep their hands warm whilst doing some practical work in the house, garden, or their place of business. The Silverdale Cosy Hot water Bottle Cover Kit uses wool from British Breeds in an Aran weight. Create this useful and cosy knitted home accessory which will warm the heart of your loved one as well as remind them of you whenever they hold it close.
For a gardening enthusiast who enjoys spending their weekends outdoors, whatever the time of year, treat them to some luxury garden twine made with 100% British wool. Our Guava Pink Garden Twine will bring some added colour and cheeriness besides the plants and flowers in bloom in any sized outdoor plot, in a window box or terrace. We have packaged it with a paper band, and it comes as 92m/100 yards per pack.
