Gorgeous Yarns Logo

Gorgeous Yarns specialize in natural yarns to knit and crochet with, lovely fibres which make creating something beautiful a pleasure.

The Challenge

This was a brand new business wishing to sell online – creating a shop for visitors to come to, not just to buy yarn but also to feel part of a community where they could learn techniques and keep up with news.  Gorgeous Yarns were clear that they needed a platform that they could scale up in the future as business and stock grows.

The Solution

Caroline at Gorgeous Yarns had expressed that she liked beiges, creams and pinks so that’s what I used.  I coloured their buttons and social media icons to match the theme and I used dotted lines between sections to represent stitching.  Large images on the home page showcase the products and set the scene.  There are a mixture of fonts, a plain font for the main text, the more traditional Georgia for some of the headings and a more arty script font used in a couple of places to tie in with the font Caroline used for the logo.

The blog and social media integration creates the desired community feel – a blog is a great way to demonstrate expertise, give help and advice and add a personal touch. Caroline is pretty great at blogging, people want to come back and see more – plus the blog looks gorgeous with large featured images for each post.

Products are well categorised in the navigation menu to enable visitors to quickly get to what they want.  Individual products come in several colours and on the single product pages large images in the gallery change as different colours are selected.  The number of products in the store has grown considerably since the site was built, so scaling up has been no issue at all.

What a fab project!  The Clients were very clear about their requirements and it all came together very well.  Working with lovely images is always a bonus and there were plenty of those. Caroline even drew her own logo!
