Made from a 60% Cotton and 40% Acrylic blend, create garments, homeware items and accessories that are simultaneously lightweight, breathable and stand-out with a beautiful drape. Unlike other gradient yarns, Scheepjes Whirl has a generous twist to enable speed while working the yarn and to help prevent splitting. Each colourway also has a unique twisted ply which adds to the distinctiveness of each colourway. At each colour change, the fibres have been tied by hand leaving a subtle fluff or fuzz buzz, which will hide discretely between your stitches, giving you a smooth, flawless finish with a characteristic flavour! The extra-large Scheepjes Whirl yarn cakes hold an enormous 1000 metres of softly colour changing yarn; more than enough for a large shawl or wrap. Scheepjes Whirl is a Fingering weight yarn (4 Ply) suitable for needle/hook sizes 3.50-4.00mm.
the yarn had faults where it had not been spun properly creating bulk and fraying so could not be used . I needed the yarn for a baby blanket that was needed urgently. If this had not been the case i would have returned the yarn
this is the first time i have been disappointed with Scheepjes yarn and assume it will be an isolated incident
Love the way the colours blend so nicely. It is absolutely gorgeous
