Celebrating fifteen years of TOFT! 

This week (from 15:00 BST 5th August  - 15:00 BST 12th August 2021) TOFT celebrates fifteen years in business, and what better way to do that than with cake! Real cake, crocheted cake, and FREE cupcake patches being packed into every order. 

15% OFF 
Shop with us this week and you’ll save 15% across our entire website (excludes existing bundle deals already offering a discount). There’s no need for a code, just enjoy a browse, fill up your basket and checkout to save 15% on your next knitting or crochet project, book for your bookshelf or any of our haberdashery range.

Download a free cupcake pattern and hook up your own TOFT birthday cake. Complete with candle and i-cord icing that can be knitted or crocheted, this is a great pattern to add to your go-to library for birthday presents! 

Place an online order this weekend and you’ll receive a specially designed birthday cupcake patch in each parcel. Each patch colour has a matching fruit or confectionary crochet topper pattern to finish your handmade cupcake to perfection. There are nine different coloured cupcake patches (Yellow, Lime, Blue, Turquoise, Orange, Magenta, Pink, Ruby and Amethyst) which will be allocated randomly into each parcel, all with their own unique topper pattern to make your cupcake look good enough to eat.


Get your hands on a commemorative 15 years TOFT enamel pin to mark the celebration. This collectable enamel pin badge captures the iconic TOFT yarn label that we are all very familiar with removing from balls of yarn as the first stage of any new project. 

Design features include a cutout hole and birthday balloon. This is a limited edition batch of 1500 pins. Backer colours are assorted, but all pins are identical and will be randomly allocated.

We would like to thank everyone who entered the design competition this Spring to create a new Birthday tote bag planned to be released this week. We are very disappointed to say that due to ongoing COVID supply challenges, the winning design tote bags are currently en-route but will not make it to HQ until late September. Upon their arrival they will be the packing totes across all of our orders to celebrate our 15th Birthday. Congratulations to Jo White, who submitted the winning design – a preview of which you can see below!


Order fast if you want to get your hands on the first exclusively-HQ alpaca batches of yarn in a decade! Our homegrown pure baby alpaca yarns are very rare and a special treat for your hooks and needles.

This is a rare chance to get your hands on four skeins of less than one tonne of homegrown 100% alpaca yarn from the fleeces of the TOFT herd. Grazing the fields around our HQ, this exclusive and very limited batch yarn is made from blending together only the finest baby alpaca fleeces to produce four distinct undyed shades named after four of our top alpaca stud males.

Skywalker: the great, great grandfather of the TOFT herd, this legendary stud was imported from the altiplano of Peru in 2000 at an unknown age and came to live out his years in our fields in Warwickshire. He gave us show-winner after show-winner and made perhaps the biggest single-animal impact on our breeding programme with his very soft and very fine fibre. Closest TOFT shade to this colour: ‘Chestnut’.

Tornado: son of the renowned ‘Tulley’, Tornado’s beautiful light fawn fleece is the colour of ripened grain in late-summer fields. When sheared this stunning alpaca cuts the equivalent quality fleece of a two-year-old despite his age, and passes the traits of an exceptionally fine and lustrous fleece onto all his sons and daughters. Along with his superior fleece characteristics, you can also spot his progeny in our fields by their beautiful fluffy ears! Closest TOFT shade to this colour: ‘Oatmeal’.

Timogen: The National Alpaca Show brown champion for two consecutive years, Timogen is a stunning stud male combining TOFT’s famous Skywalker and Tulley bloodlines. An outstandingly rich dark brown fleece with the density and fineness of both his grandfathers. Closest TOFT shade to this colour: ‘Cocoa’.

Harima: the newest kid of the block here at HQ, Harima is a 6th generation TOFT animal. Although not yet siring any progeny, he’ll be starting a working career at TOFT this season and we can’t wait to meet his cria for the first time in twelve months! Closest TOFT shade to this colour: ‘Camel’.
