Modern day classics are hard to come by, but if you are reading this then you have just found one!

Emu Classic DK is the fastest selling yarn we have ever seen since its launch in 2021. With its iconic metallic and monochrome silver ball band, Emu Classic DK’s generous 100g balls have rapidly become a firm favourite for thousands of savvy UK knitters and crocheters who have made the switch. With a huge shade range, beautifully soft premium acrylic handle, wonderful stitch definition, and by being very easy to work with, it’s no surprise that Emu Classic DK has more 5-star customer ratings than any other yarn on The Knitting Network.

Softness is always the defining characteristic of all Emu Classic ranges by customers when they pick up a ball. However, even though it is exceptionally soft, Emu Classic DK is also hugely versatile - fully machine washable at 40 degrees, it can be ironed at a low temperature, and it can even go in the tumble drier.

From scarves to shawls, blankets to boleros, cardigans to cushion covers, plant hangers to patchwork jumpers, you simply won’t find a better choice of premium acrylic everyday yarn for all your knitting and crochet needs than Emu Classic DK.

The all-new Emu story…

Emu is one of the best-known brands in British knitting, a firm favourite for generations of knitters and crocheters since 1941. Combining tradition and innovation, the Emu range has been reworked and relaunched with an ever-growing portfolio of modern yarns that offer exceptional quality and value for money.

The Emu Classic range - including DK, Chunky, Super Chunky and Aran weights - has been curated by a team responsible for some of the most famous yarn names in British knitting. Their mission is to make sure that every Emu yarn is at least as good as its competitors. Just read the reviews, thousands of knitters and crocheters have made the switch to Emu and will tell you all about the premium feel, the softness and the quality - often better than far more expensive alternatives!

Why switch to Emu? Exceptional quality and value for money. Emu yarns are sourced directly from some of the best spinners in the world, using fibres of the highest quality and spinning processes to our exacting specification. Better still, Emu’s approach ensures prices that offer the very best value for money!

For a brand renowned for its quality, colour range and, of course, its softness, the Emu Classic, Treasure, Cotton and Funfair ranges are true modern classics, continuing a spinning tradition that goes back over 80 years
